TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Parkland student survivors started the March For Our Lives protest in the wake of the shooting that took 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

They believe the time to talk about guns is now and to make sure we can say "never again" to school shootings.

The focus of March For Our Lives is to demand a bill be brought before Congress to address gun laws.

People came from nearby cities to join the rally in the Capital City, saying the safety of future generations is the main priority and every voice can make a difference.

"I feel like there is a lot of criticism of children that they don't know what they want, that they're too young to understand, but I think we're underestimating them," said local school teacher Jennifer Sullivan.

Tallahassee is one of nearly 850 where a march was held Saturday.

"We do have a voice and you may think our opinions don't matter yet because we're too young to vote, but we remember the actions that you take," said high school student and protester Cassidy Cobb.
