Survivors of the Majory Stoneman Douglas school shooting (opens in new tab) in Parkland, Florida, are outraged that yet another school shooting has occurred in the U.S.—less than three weeks after 17 people (opens in new tab) were killed on their campus.
Students-turned-activists Emma González, Jaclyn Corin, Sarah Chadwick, and others took to Twitter to express their anger and support for gun-reform upon learning of a shooting at Central Michigan University (opens in new tab), which claimed the lives of at least two people Friday.

The MSD students have been very vocal about wanting U.S. politicians to reform the country's gun laws so that shootings will "never again" happen on school grounds.
After their own deadly school shooting, the students launched the Never Again online campaign (opens in new tab) and March for Our Lives (opens in new tab), which is a demonstration set to take place on March 24 in Washington, D.C. to "demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today."
A separate school walk-out (opens in new tab) organized by EMPOWER, the Woman's March youth branch, is scheduled to take place on March 14. It will begin at 10 a.m. in each time zone and last for 17 minutes—one for each victim who lost their life in the massacre. Parkland, Florida, is listed as one of the communities that will participate in the walk-out.
Enough is enough!Women's March Youth EMPOWER is calling for students, teachers, and allies to take part in a #NationalSchoolWalkout for 17 minutes at 10am on March 14, 2018. Join us in saying #ENOUGH!https://t.co/8ZE8uthRlZ pic.twitter.com/45yCZl4zDmFebruary 16, 2018
Immediately following the Majory Stoneman Douglas shooting, some conservatives, including Tomi Lahren and Mark Dice, criticized the students for turning to social media during the crisis. "Someone want to tell the Generation Z kids that in the event of a school shooting, they should call 911 instead of posting video of it on Snapchat," Dice wrote in a now-deleted tweet (opens in new tab).
However, the teens immediately responded to their critics (opens in new tab), calling their remarks "ridiculous."
I was there. I heard the screams. I heard my classmates & friends screaming for help as he shot into their classrooms next to mine. I saw them lying there when police broke the door and ushered us out. It was a pain I had never hoped I’d have to experience or anyone to experienceFebruary 16, 2018
