Tens of thousands of students and others attended nationwide marches this weekend in support of school safety and reasonable gun reform. March for Our Lives was organized by a network of students in response to last month’s deadly shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla. In downtown Flagstaff, hundreds gathered to honor the victims and call for tighter gun laws. KNAU’s Gillian Ferris reports.


State senators gave final approval this afternoon to legislation that could let anyone bring a gun into a public building. 

Current law says posting a sign makes it illegal to enter with a gun. This legislation adds the requirement of having armed guards and metal detectors. Proponents said the signs are obeyed only by law-abiding citizens, leaving them prey to those who ignore the signs. Sen. Al Melvin said society can be broken down into three groups: The unarmed sheep, armed sheep dogs -- and the wolves who are the bad guys.
