PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A week after a school shooting left 17 people dead in Parkland, West Broward High School students in Pembroke Pines walked out of their classrooms to protest for gun control. 

After walking out, students marched to support the "Never Again" movement that survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School started. 

"West Broward will not tolerate the danger that lack of gun control legislation poses to our schools," Fabiana Corsi wrote. 

They staged the demonstration to show solidarity with the survivors who traveled to Tallahassee to lobby the Florida House Representatives, a day after 71 law makers halted a bill that would ban assault rifles from making it to the Florida House floor. 

The young survivors are also organizing a nationwide march to protest the lack of gun control that students believe allowed Cruz to get a hold of the rifle that he used to kill last week.
