GALLERY: Frisco ISD students call for change, action in gun control during National School Walkout


Frisco ISD students walked out of school Friday to participate in the National School Walkout, recognizing the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

Students, including those at Frisco High School, organized protests at FISD high schools asking U.S. Congress to take action on gun control. The protest at Frisco High School included a voter registration table. Those who were not old enough to register were asked to educate themselves on the issue.

Student speakers encouraged students to vote and called Congress to pass stricter gun laws. One speaker pointed to the threat made against Frisco High School last week as a reason to call for more gun control now.

According to district officials, students would not be penalized for participating in a walkout as long as they followed the requirements for a limited public forum.

    I think stricter gun control would be a good thing but as long as they don’t take the guns away. After all, we still have the Second Amendment which allows us to have guns. We just need to make sure that wrong people do not get their hands on the guns and do terrible things with them.
