"I was actually in the Student Union Building and I was on lock down while this shooter was running a muck", Nguyen said. "I'm glad people are hearing what a couple high schoolers have to say".
Since the Parkland, Florida shooting last month that took the lives of 17 people, students have been leading the charge for school safety and better gun regulations.

Gun control advocates in the United States of America - notably school students directly affected by the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the city of Parkland, Florida, last month - are pressing the US Government to introduce wide-ranging new laws following the shooting which claimed the lives of 17 students and teachers. Participants at the March will gather along Pennsylvania Ave NW, stretching from 3rd Street NW to 12th Street NW.
The march in Washington is being led by #NeverAgain, which was started in the aftermath of the massacre by student survivors like Cameron Kasky and Emma Gonzalez.
Through the first 11 weeks of 2018, there have been 17 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed.

After another similar conversation on Valentine's Day, Dortch looked at her mother and told her they need a revolution. These students are so afraid they're stepping up to speak with their shaking voices and demanding to be heard. "I hope you've been as inspired by these students as I have-now, more than ever, is the time to speak out". "I'm more than proud, proud is not even really a big enough word for this".
"They expect our generation to have a short attention span and we are not gonna let that happen, because the second we forget about this it can and it will be you", Hogg said.
Cape Cod Student Board member Jack Forrester said the group planned the Hyannis march "through a collaboration of student representatives from towns across Cape Cod and the Islands".
Dortch said she also helped run the walkout at SCF Collegiate School.
