Students all across the country are planning several “walk-outs” due to the recent mass school shooting in Florida on Wednesday, February 14th. Yesterday, the Florida state House declined to pass a ban on semiautomatic guns and large capacity magazines. Florida students planned a walkout today at noon to combat this decision and put pressure on Congress to pass more gun reform, but their determination has spread across the country and pushed other students to do the same. Today at Hammond, many students participated in the walkout and contributed to the protests against gun violence sweeping the nation.
