Capital Region School Walkout, Rally Friday for Gun Control

Students in at least two local school districts are planning another round of walkouts and rallies in support of gun control and improved school safety. 

According to the Gazette students in Niskayuna and Saratoga Springs plan to rally outside their respective town halls on Friday, while other students will join in a demonstration outside the Capitol. 

The paper says two students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, site of the February shooting, will be in Albany. 

However, school administrators say anyone attending any rally will face disciplinary consequences, including an unexcused absence for leaving class.
