SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- People on social media reacted after students all over San Diego County walked out of class Wednesday to show solidarity in protesting gun violence.
The walkouts began at 10 a.m. and lasted 17 minutes, one minute for each of those killed in the Parkland shooting.
Photos posted on various social media platforms show students holding posters and standing together in protest.
Others’ rights to own an assault rifle is NOT as important as our right to LIVE. No more compromising. We need change, and I stand in solidarity with everyone protesting gun violence today. This is for the 17 lives lost in the Parkland shooting, as well as the hundreds of lives that were taken because of the lack of gun control in America. #NationalWalkOutDay #NeverAgain
