A group of students from across the United States who have experienced shootings at their schools have come together in Washington to discuss the way to stop gun culture in the country.

The Student Gun Violence Summit was organized by students from a high school in Florida where 17 people were killed in a shooting in February.

Participants from about 40 high schools spoke about the trauma they had experienced. One thinks about an incident that happened at school at least once a day. Another student expressed fear of a repeat attack.

In group discussions, the students talked about ways to strengthen gun control. Some proposed reducing gun use by making bullets more expensive.

Another called for a change in the system that allows gun-related organizations and businesses to make big political donations.

A student from Florida said she wants to spread the message of tighter gun control to create a society without gun violence.

Many American high school students are calling on people to vote for candidates advocating stricter firearms regulations in the upcoming midterm elections.
