Students Across The Country Demand Action On Gun Reform

Accused Marjory Stoneman Douglas gunman Nikolas Cruz returned to court Monday afternoon

"After the Parkland, Florida shooting, we students can no longer stay silent on the issue of gun violence in the United States", Gelillo said. "We are too young to vote, but soon we will be able to vote, and we will vote you out".

Fellow student Delaney Tarr said she had prom and grades on her mind before the shooting. "[I feel] sadness, but it's triumph because I know we can make a difference".

Principals for both St. Charles high schools anticipated the walkouts and sent a note to staff urging them to not discourage students' participation. Head here to take a look back at the tragedy in Parkland and beyond.

Tiger Woods named Ryder Cup vice-captain... but goal is to play
Now he is excited about being a vice-captain, both for Davis Love in 2016 and Steve Stricker a year ago at the Presidents Cup. Tiger was famously deep into the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine as a vice captain, planning strategies months in advance.

"There should be gun laws that keep people from getting their hands on these types of weapons that can bring harm to us", he said.

"I think they've realised the way you express yourself in this country is by words and at the ballot box". "They can walk around any question they want, but the more they don't act, the more they don't deserve to be in office".

And though the students learned mid-trip that the Florida State House had just rejected a move to consider a bill that would have banned assault rifles, there was some evidence out of Washington their calls for change are being heard. The suspected shooter, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, was a former student of the school who had a propensity to violence, according to disturbing social media posts.

United States existing home sales slump again in January
The median price for an existing single-family home was $241,700, while the median price for an existing condo was $231,600. Economists often describe a "balanced" market as one with five to seven months worth of inventory.

"We are, honestly at this point, begging them to do something, to save our lives, to save teachers' lives", Olivia Feller, a Stoneman Douglas junior, told Politico.

Students at another OH high school organized a walkout on Wednesday, joining high schoolers across the nation now calling for restrictions on the AR-15 assault rifle that Florida law enforcement authorities say was legally bought by the 19-year-old gunman.

On Tuesday, he directed the Justice Department to develop regulation that would ban the so-called bump stocks, which were used in the Las Vegas shooting last fall, but not last week's shooting in Florida. "I was in a closet, locked for four hours with people who I would consider nearly family, crying and weeping on me, begging for their lives".
