PHOENIX — About 30 students gathered at the Arizona state Capitol for a “die-in” on the second anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

March for Our Lives Arizona organized the event Tuesday in honor of those killed at the Florida nightclub and to call for a special session on gun control.

Participants spread out on the floor of the Executive Tower for 49 minutes, one for each shooting victim.

Republican Gov. Doug Ducey had proposed a school safety bill earlier this year.

That plan would increase mental and behavioral health resources for schools.

It would also create a new way to petition courts to prevent a dangerous individual from accessing guns.

But the legislature adjourned without passing the plan.

Ducey said Tuesday he wouldn’t bring lawmakers back if they wouldn’t take action.
