Locals gather in downtown Las Vegas for March For Our Lives rally


Summoned to action by student survivors of the Florida school shooting, hundreds of thousands of teenagers and their supporters rallied in the nation's capital and cities across America on Saturday to press for gun control in one of the biggest youth protests since the Vietnam era.

Kicking off at 10 a.m., students from throughout the valley took part in the local demonstration of the March for Our Lives.

Walking from the Smith Center to the Las Vegas City Hall, teenagers -- some not even old enough to vote yet -- took on a very adult topic: politics.

What started in Parkland, Florida, as yet another school shooting tragedy has now sparked a movement in teens across the nation.

The calls for change are not only heard from the survivors in Florida but others throughout this entire nation, including 18-year-old Clark High School senior Lauryn Tsai.

"Why is this happening again? Why does this continue to happen?" asked Tsai. "Congress really needs to take action to make sure that this never happens again. Enough is enough."
