During first period English last Friday at Capital high school in Helena, student Noah Whitehorn, felt his phone buzz with a notification; 10 people were dead following a school shooting in a small town just outside of Houston, Texas.

“I almost cried in the middle of English class. How is this still happening? After all that we’ve done in the past few months you’d think that at least something would have been accomplished.”

Montana gun rights advocates are organizing a rally in defense of the Second Amendment later this month in Helena. The "March For Our Guns" rally is planned for Saturday, March 24, on the steps of the state Capitol. That’s the same day "March For Our Lives" groups nationwide plan rallies to protest gun violence.
