National School Walkout prompts some politicians to join movement, while others focus on legislation

A handful of politicans are offering words of encouragement, some even joining the movement, while others focused their attention on legislation, such as the STOP School Violence Act.

Today, the House will take concrete action to prevent this violence through the bipartisan STOP School Violence Act, which implements new training programs in our schools, updates security technology, and more," House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., posted on Twitter, announcing the House would vote on the legislation Wednesday.

It’s time that this country comes together to do something about gun violence," Schumer tweeted.

"#NationalWalkoutDay, the students, teachers, families & friends standing up all give me hope that things will finally, finally change."

In response, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, asked Schumer to "#FixNICS," the National Instant Criminal Background Check System -- a federal law that requires licensed gun sellers to conduct background checks on all buyers.
