The best attention-grabbing signs from the March For Our Lives protests

"I have a dream that enough is enough, and that this should be a gun-free world, period!"

On Saturday, hundreds of thousands of youth and their families gathered at the nation's Capitol for the March For Our Lives rally, organized by survivors of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"We deserve safer schools". "We don't need teachers carrying guns now".

And it's not even that I am against looking into what we can possibly do to make sure that lunatics don't get guns, it's just that I don't think it will do anything. This is powerful stuff, and hopefully it can inspire the necessary legislative change. The 18-year-old's speech was proof that sometimes, silence can speak louder than words.

He and other students want assault weapons and high-capacity magazines banned, and the age limit raised to 21 for gun purchases. While most walkouts that day were 17 minutes, Naomi Wadler said she added a minute in honor of Courtlin Arrington, a teen victim of gun violence at an Alabama school after the Parkland, Fla. school shooting.

Students like Ryan Bronston say that the trip will be a great learning experience.

"We are the mass shooting generation; every millennial that is here".

The young lady also took a hit at those calling her a "tool of some nameless adult".

"What an inspiration they are", she said. "This is a show of community and unity that we're together under a single cause".

During the Washington rally, David Hogg referenced lawmakers during his speech to the crowd, saying "you can hear the people in power shaking". I'm here to say, "Never again" for those girls, too.

Rather, Berglee would like to see armed security guards and school buildings get modernized before guns and legal gun owners are forced to relinquish certain guns or rights. "Now, it's become the norm".

There's an equally passionate advocate from whom these dedicated students, nationwide, should take counsel: "Be depressed, discouraged and disappointed at failure and the disheartening effects of ignorance greed, corruption and bad politics - but never give up".

The Republican appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday and said: "How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations when there is a violent shooter that you can actually respond to that".

Waggoner said she believes there's a misconception among those who oppose gun control that those in favor of it want to take everyone's guns away.

The nationwide protests on Saturday were by far the largest in almost two decades, part of a reignited gun control debate sparked by last month's killings at a Florida high school. "I'm really inspired by the kids who have come out to march and I'm with them 100%".

The 2008 shooting occurred at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church on Kingston Pike that killed two people and injured seven.

"There's a lot of really good energy here", she said. "They don't need to be scared going to school [or] have those kinds of drills".
