It's been just over a week since the horrific massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, but survivors have already been busy pushing for gun reform.
Within a day of the shooting, Douglas students became cable news fixtures, many calling on Congress to restrict access to semi-automatic weapons like the AR-15 used to kill 17 of their teachers and classmates.
On Feb. 17, students gathered outside the Broward County Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Cameron Kasky, Delaney Tarr, and Emma Gonzalez, among others, led the crowd in calls to reject the pro-gun narratives of groups like the NRA.
"The people in the government who were voted into power are lying to us. And us kids seem to be the only ones who notice and ... call BS," Gonzalez roared into the microphone in an instantly iconic speech. "Companies [try] to make caricatures of the teenagers these days, saying that all we are self-involved and trend-obsessed and they hush us into submission when our message doesn't reach the ears of the nation. We are prepared to call BS."

On Feb. 20 and 21, students from nearby districts staged walkouts and marched down to Douglas High School for a vigil.
Many of the students came from West Boca High School, and traveled the 10 miles to Douglas High School on foot.

It's easy to be cynical, to again say that nothing will change — but maybe this time is different? Only time will tell.
Let's hope so.
Still going strong. Something is different this time. https://t.co/feqC4tCkEq— Nate Silver (@Nate Silver)1519268779.0
