Kids unite on National School Walkout calling for tighter gun control

Students across the country are coming together in a National School Walkout today in a call on Congress to pass tighter gun control laws.

The ENOUGH National School Walkout is taking place exactly one month after the mass shooting at a Florida high school that killed 17 people and sent shock waves throughout the United States.
