Shame on you! Florida students confront lawmakersScores of students from Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School rallied alongside hundreds of students from other schools Wednesday at the state Capitol, chanting "Never again" and "Shame on you!"

The energetic crowd waved signs including "Keep our schools safe" and "I will not stand idly by." They cheered vigorously during speeches as students from the school, the scene of last week's shooting rampage that killed 17 people, demanded an end to gun violence.

Lorenzo Prado, a Stoneman Douglas junior, choked up as he told of being mistaken for the gunman in the chaotic minutes after the shooting started. He said a SWAT team ordered him to the ground at gunpoint and handcuffed him. Prado, near tears, said he felt guilty for the people he could not protect.
