Nationwide Protest for Better Safety

By Erin Asis Managing Editor

In response to the Feb. 14 shooting in Parkland, Fl., a national school walkout is scheduled for tomorrow, March 14 at 10 A.M.

The walkout is intended to honor the 17 victims from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High. The walkout is also aimed to achieve gun reform, stronger background checks, and banning Bump Stocks.

ASB President Javier Salcedo said “We support students and everything they do. This is democracy in action and brings the issue to life, and can hopefully get congress to make a change.”

Students who intend to participate should know their rights. A student who walks out can be disciplined for missing class, however the student cannot be punished any harsher for walking out or expressing their political views.

There is also a “March for Our lives” scheduled to take place on March 24th at 10 A.M. in Bixby Park.
