Before Saturday's March for Our Lives, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg said the media had made a big mistake "not giving black students a voice" after the shooting rampage.
The students are still riding the high of the March For Our Lives events, which gained national attention, raised millions of dollars and attracted celebrity support for the issue of tighter gun laws and an end to gun lobbyists.
In addition to clear backpacks, the Broward County school district has ensured there will be increased police presence on campus. And unsurprisingly, the students all immediately took to Twitter to ridicule the hell out of them. "My school was a place where everyone felt comfortable, it was a home away from home, and now that home has been destroyed", he said.
Longtime NRA board member and musician Ted Nugent isn't backing down from criticizing some of the Parkland school shooting survivors, despite the backlash he's received.
"Feminine hygiene products that we need, we have to carry with us", said student Kacey Bartley.
Cruz, 19, a former Stoneman Douglas student, entered campus through an open gate shortly before school ended for the day, carrying his AR-15 rifle in a bag.
"There is nothing about this skinhead lesbian that impresses me and there is nothing that she has to say unless you're a frothing at the mouth moonbat", Gibson wrote in a tweet, which was later deleted, according to the Washington Post. As much as I appreciate the effort we as a country need to focus on the real issue instead of turning our schools into prisons. There are a lot of great plans on paper, but implementation is just not feasible. "Similar to what they do at court houses and the airport!" he said.
Metal detectors and metal detecting wands are not now in place on campus, but their use is being considered.
Thompson said someone sent an email warning of a threat to the campus.
On Monday, student Sarah Chadwick tweeted out a photo of the clear backpacks that every single one of her classmates had been given, which were handed out to students during second block.
She then chanted with the crowd, "Shame on you" and "We call BS".
"It just kind of came to me", Kiffin said.
"It was hilarious to see all of us look stupid together, but it made me feel better because we all looked the same", said student Aalayah Eastmond.
