FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Students with the March For Our Lives movement took their fight for tougher gun laws straight to the source Monday, as they protested outside the National Rifle Association Headquarters in Fairfax.
But not before starting the day at a gun-rights rally in Richmond.
With threats of violence looming before a gun-rights rally, a couple of delegates secretly escorted the students to their offices at the Capitol complex so they could stay overnight and safely take part in Lobby Day.
March For Our Lives formed following the Parkland school shooting in Florida.
"The times are changing," Lauren Rollerson said. "We’re not going to stand by and watch this happen anymore. Our lives matter."
Rollerson and dozens of other MFOL students wanted to remember the lives lost in Virginia to gun violence.
"We can’t just let them put a price tag on us," Rollerson said in reference to the NRA.
The March for our Lives students weren't the only ones who wanted the NRA to hear their voices.
