Stacy Ryburn at the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that around 30 students gathered in front of the Washington County Courthouse today for National School Walkout Day, a protest against gun violence on the nineteenth anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting.

Thousands of students across the country participated in the event, walking out of class at 10 a.m. in their time zone. After observing a moment of silence for shooting victims, many held rallies, protests, or other events.

Any readers know if there were students participating in Little Rock or elsewhere in the state? Will update this post if so.

Ryburn reports that the kids held signs and were greeted with mostly supportive honks.
