Haunted: Students face fears on return to scene of Florida school shooting

The National Rifle Association "wants more people just like this, with that exact firearm, to scare more people and sell more guns", said David Hogg, a 17-year-old senior and shooting survivor at Stoneman Douglas who has become a leading voice in the student movement to restrict assault weapons.

"It's kind of finding a new norm", student Sam Zeif told ABC News on his way to school today.

We were not allowed inside for the walkout but administrators said the students rallied for 22 minutes, which represents the $22 million cut from the state's education budget. The women said they had felt helpless during the shooting and they were trying to be strong for their children. "So that was very upsetting".

There was still a noticeable police presence, with officers stationed at every corner of the high school.

A local police union asked all off-duty law enforcement officers to come as a show of support, ABC News reported. "The more videos that come out, the more the interviews come out, the more investigation that's done, we'll get a real clear picture about what happened".

The superintendent says students from Charles Page High School also chose to walk out after hearing about the rally at the ninth-grade school.

Kayla Sharpe, a 16-year-old junior at Grand Blanc High School, went to the district's administration with hopes of students at the school joining in the walkout. "At this school or any other".

Melissa Broccoli and Christine Dunhill were shaking as they reunited Thursday at their usual pick-up spot outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"I don't think it's going to be the same for these kids either", said Petty.
