Students across the nation are planning to walk out of their classes at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 14 for National School Walkout day. Students and advocates say they will walk out of class for 17 minutes to press Congress for tighter gun laws as well as honor the 17 lives that were lost last month during the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School.
