The walkout is in response to the shooting that took place on Valentine’s Day in Florida.
As students protested against gun violence outside a Broward County school, a Twitter page/@studentswalkout was established seeking to carry out a nationwide student walkout next week https://t.co/hvUdVkL8F1 pic.twitter.com/KfTM8w6BeY

Gun control advocates quickly applauded the students for their action. Many encouraged them to stay home from school until legislators take up gun control measures.

Is this about getting Democratic voters or about stopping “gun violence?”
I hope all schools across the country will follow suit!

Doubtful. There are areas of the country where guns are a normal way of life and people respect them.
These kids are heroes we need and the ones we certainly don't deserve. May we learn from them.

I applaud these young people for protesting! And I am thankful that they represent our future! So proud! Keep it up! Just because you can’t vote yet does not mean your voices shouldn’t be heard and heard loud!

I hope this spreads to every school across America. Enough! #GunControlNow

Don't even go back to School until they have this straightened out. Kids are not safe in those buildings when their are disturbed kids with guns around. All kids should Boycott School until it is fixed.

IF STUDENTS REFUSE TO ATTEND PUBLIC SCHOOL, due to safety concerns resulting in Governments REFUSAL to PLACE RESTRICTIONS ON GUNS…schools WILL NOTICE millions of ? they lose for those empty desks and perhaps STATES will pass and pressure republicans.

High school students: protest. Change can start with each of you. Don't give up until your school is safer from gun violence. Make them listen!

Please walkout until your school listens and keeps you safe! Don’t give up! Praying the gov’t will listen!

I predicted this, but unless it's a large enough scale (which I predict will be less than 10,000 kids ) it definitely won't come to fruition. I know my generation, maybe 5% are intelligent enough to organize something like this. However those 5% are too busy working hard
