(Columbia, SC) -- Without change, students will continue to live under the lingering threat of violence every time they go to class.
That's what one student said at a rally for new gun laws yesterday in Columbia. The students were joined by lawmakers, teachers and members of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.
One woman tells "The State" rallies won't bring change unless they lead to both sides sitting down and talking.
Meanwhile, Democrat James Clyburn is trying to close the Charleston Loophole that allowed Dylann Roof to buy a gun because the FBI took too long to do a background check.
Clyburn filed a bill to close that loophole, but he said yesterday House Republicans voted twice to block consideration of it.
In response, Clyburn filed a discharge petition that would require a vote on his bill if a majority of House members sign on to it.
