(REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.) - Over a thousand people in Rehoboth Beach took part in the "March For Our Lives", part of a nationwide effort today, as citizens urge politicians to create better gun control policy.

They walked from Stockley Street Park, onto the boardwalk, ending at the bandstand

"Make America Safe Again," they chanted.

"Hopefully this will encourage change. This will encourage change in legislation. This will encourage people to vote for different officials," one event organizer said.

"I would like to know that when my sons go to school that they don't have to worry about an intruder. I want them to go to school and read," said a mom and teacher from Rehoboth.

The "March For Our Lives" movement began with the youth in Parkland, Florida, after last month's tragic shootings.

Today, youth on Delmarva voices were heard loud and clear.

"Gun for no reason, killing people for no reason is not cool at all," one youngster from Seaford said.

"I'm fighting for my safety, my friend's safety, my brother's safety, my little sister's safety, everybody's safety to keep growing to be what they want to be and not living in fear," one Rehoboth Beach student said.

It's a cause uniting republicans and democrats.

"As we continue to work together on a bipartisan basis," said Delaware State Senator Ernie Lopez.

"And if we need to do more to make sure our children are safe at school or at home then let's get busy doing it," Delaware U.S. Senator Chris Coons said.

Of course, for as many people out here fighting for tougher gun control laws. there are just many people fighting to keep their second amendment right intact. obviously making it a tough debate for the long haul.
