Students from Greeneville High School participated in a walkout as part of the "March for Our Lives" movement this morning.

Fourteen students from Greeneville High marched down Main Street chanting that the NRA has got to go.

They stopped in front of the courthouse to speak. The students emphasized that they were not opposing the second amendment, but protesting gun violence.

They also had speakers from Moms Demand Action and Indivisible Greene County.

The organizer, Nathaniel Ashley, who is a senior at GHS, said that current gun laws are weak and ineffective.

Ashley explained his inspiration for the walkout:
