Most mass shooters have two things in common. The easy access Cruz had to purchase this firearm is one of the many reasons America should create stricter gun regulations. He knows that it's far more likely that the next time his phone vibrates in all likelihood it will be about another Black man - one who most likely was fatally shooting by another Black. Johnson chimed in, urging Sandhaus and others to mobilize against the National Rifle Association.

"I urge everyone here and everyone who hears my voice to join me in telling the stories that aren't told, to honor the girls, the women of color who are murdered at disproportionate rates in this nation".

Similar to the speakers, the crowd was filled with students looking for a change in gun policy.

An estimated 8,000 people attended the March for Our Lives rally on March 24 at the Utah State Capitol. "The adults in the room have let you down", she said.

Pennsylvania law bars anyone from carrying guns in school or on school grounds. They have to outdo each other for young audiences who have grown up with violent video games.

Creating new regulations is hard because the NRA has a large following, lots of money and large political influence.

I'm encouraged seeing so many young people who, along with asking "When is enough, enough?", are taking a firm stand in advocating for gun control.

"My experience here in Washington was absolutely unbelievable, joining the march with all these people to change something that should have been changed when the first school shooting happened..."

"We will rise up like in the civil rights movement when students became freedom riders to fight for the rights of everybody".

"Marco Rubio said this is the kind of incident that can happen anytime to anybody and nothing will change", he said. Hollywood, with its high school dropouts telling us how to live and giving us this low level entertainment should be regulated. "Our schools are unsafe".

Not only did these chants resonate throughout the city and across the nation, but it also resonated with student Wilder Amato.
