Students across the United States walked out of their classrooms Thursday to protest gun violence and years of inaction in Washington, D.C. they blame for allowing mass shootings to continue, like the one that killed 19 children and two adults at Robb Elementary School this week.
“No more thoughts and prayers.”
At 12:00 p.m. Eastern time, students and teachers at more than 80 elementary, middle, and high schools took part in the nationwide demonstration organized by Students Demand Action, a branch of Everytown for Gun Safety.

Its good to have gun control, however guns legal and illegaliy can be bought in some street locales with no restrictions.
Schools and institutions of higher learning would have to become almost like prisons to resolve the mass killings.
2nd Amendment requires a “well regulated militia”. When a gun industry is the same as car laws and regulations, that would be well regulated.
