Md. students protest guns outside White House

Maryland high school students who rallied at the U.S. Capitol in support of stronger gun control have marched to the White House.

Students held a moment of silence Wednesday in memory of those killed at a Parkland, Florida, high school last week, and listened as the names of the dead were recited.

Daniel Gelillo, a senior at Richard Montgomery High in Rockville, Maryland, who helped organize the protest, says students are hoping to pressure lawmakers to finally act on gun control.

Gelillo says that "up 'til now nothing has quite fazed them. The Orlando shooting, Las Vegas and now Parkland. Something has to happen. Innocent people are dying because of the easy access to firearms in this country."
