Just days after the national school walkouts in which students spoke out against gun violence -- and days before the national March For Our Lives -- another school shooting has occurred at Great Mills High School in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

Less than a WEEK ago Great Mills High School students walked out with us to protest gun violence...now they’re experiencing it for themselves. The state of our country is disgusting - I’m so sorry, Great Mills.— Jaclyn Corin (@JaclynCorin) March 20, 2018
They walked out in protest last week, now the students of Great Mills High School are hiding from their own school shooter this week. My entire body is in chills. Please. No more. 💔 #Enough— Megan Ferguson (@OUfergie) March 20, 2018
