Emma Gonzalez Delivers Powerful March For Our Lives Speech

"Look how much shooting we have of innocent people, (such as) those near the bowling alley", said Howard, who calls herself a member of the zero gun violence movement. Corin responded: "96 deaths by firearm every day is not what I call great".

"Lawmakers and politicians will scream guns are not the issue", the Parkland, Fla., survivor said passionately.

"Six minutes and 20 seconds with an AR-15 and my friend Carmen (Schentrup) would never complain to me about piano practice", she said, her voice strong but her throat momentarily catching.

There have been many mass shootings, at Columbine, Virginia Tech, the Colorado theatre shooting, Sandy Hook and Las Vegas, but the movement spawned by the shooting at Marjory Douglas High has been unprecedented in its size and organization.

Edna Chavez, a 17-year-old from South Los Angeles, spoke at the rally on Saturday about her brother, Ricardo, who was a high schooler when he was shot and killed.

"I represent the African-American women who are victims of gun violence, who are simply statistics instead of vibrant, handsome girls full of potential", Wadler said, adding that she'd be a voter in "seven short years".

Hundreds responded with outrage and blasted King for criticizing a young student who had survived a school shooting.

"Our children should never fear going to school, and they should never jump at the sound of a book falling on the floor", she said to applause.

Gun enthusiasts then began to circulate posts on Facebook and Twitter criticising the march for including someone who had ripped up the constitution on camera. So angry that I'm not scared or nervous anymore.

"Welcome to the revolution", Kasky said to cheers on Saturday.

Since a gunman opened fire at her school on February 14, killing 17, Gonzalez, 18, has been a prominent leader of the #NeverAgain movement, appearing in TV interviews and on magazine covers.

MLK's granddaughter has a dream for a gun-free worldNearly 50 years to the day after her grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, Yolanda Renee King took the stage in Washington to share her dream for change.

"Ricardo was his name", Chavez said.

"I can tell you something more needs to be done - something more than thoughts and prayers". "I lost my hero".
