Students call for gun sense legislation

Students and activists are sending a message to our newly elected leaders.

Students Demand Action of Oakland and Macomb counties gathered at the Capitol building Saturday afternoon.

They're calling for gun sense legislation and gun violence prevention.

"Young people, throughout history, have been the change agents. We have anti-war, civil rights. Young people are the people who make a change and we are the biggest voting block in the country. So if we get engaged and actually turn up and hold our legislators accountable, we will make a difference," said Taylor King who spoke at the event.

The rally was headlined by former democratic gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed.

Representatives from the non-profit organization March For Our Lives as well as other Students Demand Action groups also spoke.
