WATCH: Houston Students Join Nation In ‘March For Our Lives’ Protests

Turner spoke Saturday morning at a rally at Tranquillity Park as part of the nationwide “March for Our Lives” following deadly gunfire last month at a school in Parkland, Florida

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner told several thousand people demonstrating for stricter gun control that adults have a responsibility to stand up and protect all children.

Turner spoke Saturday morning at a rally at Tranquillity Park as part of the nationwide “March for Our Lives” following deadly gunfire last month at a school in Parkland, Florida.

Turner chanted with the crowd “Now is the time” to “Do the right thing.”

Some Houston demonstrators carried American flags. Others displayed signs with slogans including: “Enough is Enough” and “Never Again.” Another handmade poster said: “I Teach— Arm Me With Books, Not Bullets.”

Houston police tweeted an image of Chief Art Acevedo at the march.

Similar rallies were planned at numerous other Texas cities, including Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio and El Paso.
