(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Yesterday's school shooting in Maryland comes just days before a national march demanding action on gun violence and safety.
On Saturday, students and supporters will rally at the parking lot by the old Ryan's on the North Belt Highway. "March for our Lives" calls for safer schools and gun control.
Those marching on Saturday will be joined by thousands of others marching across the country hoping to get the attention of lawmakers in Washington D.C. that now is to change America's gun laws.
"What a lot of people have a problem with is 'oh they're taking away our guns, they want our guns gone'. no. we just want there to be more safety measures, more precautions in place so people don't have to worry about this as much as they do because right now it's a really prevalent worry for a lot of people."
The march starts at 9 a.m. and it's expected to last two hours.
