>> As their classmates are laid to rest, survivors of America's latest mass shooting are taking matter into their own hands.>> You stay strong and you keep the message.>> Students from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida took a road trip to the state's capital, Tuesday, to talk with law makers about how to end gun violence.

And on Wednesday, they'll hold a march to demand change. Last week's massacre has inflamed another national debate and prompted teens to speak out on gun control.>> It's traumatic. It's shocking. Sometimes I don't even know how I feel because it's just so much stuff. I'm still trying to process.

>> This is big. This is life changing. This is it. This is where things are going to start happening.>> I grew up around guns.>> Some gun owners were so moved by the tragedy they're destroying their own weapons on social media with the hashtag #oneless. Even the president, a fierce supporter of the NRA, took his first step towards regulating anything gun related.

On Tuesday, Trump addressed, not Wednesday's attack, but the Las Vegas shooting from nearly five months ago, proposing to ban so called bump stock accessories.>> And just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns.

As many are joining Parkland in turning their grief into activism, celebrities are jumping onto the movement, as well. Including George Clooney and his wife, Amal, who said they will not only join students at a March 24th rally in Washington, but will donate half a million dollars to the effort.
