Senator Dick Durbin is taking notice of efforts by high school students, who are joining in demonstrations like a "lie in" protest outside the White House. Durbin gives the young people high marks for getting their message across but he isn't ready to say it will lead to a breakthrough for those who want to see further discussion about the nation's gun laws.



Durbin talks about what the movement will need after the Florida school shootings fade from the headlines.



Students from the group Teens For Gun Reform say another event dubbed “March For Our Lives” will take place March 24.
