On Sunday, student survivors of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School reacted angrily after Trump, without providing evidence, said the Federal Bureau of Investigation may have been too distracted with a Russian Federation probe to follow leads that could have prevented the massacre.
The students also addressed reporters, offering scathing words for lawmakers.
Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School - where a gunman opened fire on February 14, killing 17 - gathered in the state Senate gallery wearing shirts that read "We call BS", a rallying cry for the young activists pushing for action from elected officials. "We want to hear what our children have to say but we want to follow the guidelines provided by the school and district".
The 71-36 vote in the Republican-controlled body shocked students who were sitting in the gallery of the Capitol building.
For instance, the students said the age to purchase an AR-15-style rifle, the weapon used in the February 14 massacre, shouldn't be younger than the age requirement to purchase a handgun.
"Maybe if they see the victims themselves, something will spark a change in their mind", she said.
While the high school walkout was happening, middle-schoolers across the street also participated.
