TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Chants and anti-gun signs filled the Capitol Courtyard once again for a protest called 'Walk Out and Speak Out.'
Local high school students were standing in solidarity, fighting for gun control.
Students say, they may not be old enough to vote yet, but in a few years their votes will make all the difference.
Mayor Andrew Gillum spoke at the rally in support of their efforts.
Those attending say, they want to find a balance between respecting the second amendment and still feeling safe in schools and other public places.
"The new generation has stepped forward and we're saying that is not enough. We are not willing to stand by idly while people are dying, while our friends are dying," said Casey Epstein-Gross, Leon High School Sophomore. "We're not willing to just stand by and watch year after year go by with no action, no laws passed."
Students at the protest say, they are pushing for better background checks, closing the gun show loophole, and moving AR 15's out of circulation.
Student organizers of Friday's protest say the gun control battle is just getting started.
They plan to keep the momentum going with more community rallies.
