SPOKANE, Wash. - Hundreds of students at Lewis and Clark High School walked out on Wednesday morning, joining schools across the country in saying "enough is enough" when it comes to gun violence in schools.
Students filled every inch of the stairs and front sidewalk as they chanted and held signs asking political leaders to support stricter gun control laws.
"I'm surprised I didn't think there would be so many people," said LC student Anthony Goodman.
"I think its just insane that people care more about their guns than the lives of children in schools," said student PJ Nave.
For those that say they shouldn't be walking out of class, saying they aren't old enough to be involved in the political process, Goodman had strong words.
"It is very much our right, its not like its just affecting adults, we are sitting in school all day and we shouldn't have to worry about someone coming in and shooting us," he said.
Once the walkout was finished, students returned to their classes.
