Hours After Texas School Shooting, Students Detained for Peacefully Protesting Outside Paul Ryan’s Office

As Capitol Police arrived in the hall and told the students they would be arrested unless they left, one protester replied, “We don’t mind getting arrested.”

“One arrest, four arrests, a thousand arrests isn’t going to stop us until no more children are dying in their schools because of unnecessary guns in the hands of wrong people,” said one student as the police detained four members of the group who had refused to disperse.
