(CNSNews.com) - "Guys, tell me what's going to happen on March 24th with your plan for a big march on Washington. What's your vision?" CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked two Stoneman Douglas High School students from Parkland, Fla. on Monday morning.

"My vision is pink hats from space," Emma Gonzalez said, referring to the January 2017 women's march that turned into a huge protest of Donald Trump's election. "Like this is going to be enormous," Gonzalez continued. "And I really hope that we can, like -- I know that the word has spread wide and far, but I hope that we can even spread it even farther by that point -- because I know that that's going to be indescribable, but in such a positive way."

Her fellow student David Hogg chimed in: "And we just can't stop because these special interest groups are never going to. And if we don't stop and we make our voices heard as an American public together...we're going to have to do that if we ever want to overcome this terrible tragedy."

Gonzalez and Hogg said they hope to see the NRA, a target of their upcoming protest march, dismantled and disbanded.

In Congress, meanwhile, the massacre in Florida has revived bipartisan legislation introduced by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) in November calling for improvements in the national instant background check system.

White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Monday that President Trump is “supportive” of such an effort.
