SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Survivors of the Florida high school shooting massacre were part of a gun reform town hall in Utah addressing school safety and gun laws.

Students from the Parkland, Florida, school where 17 people were shot dead in February held a 90-minute panel discussion Saturday night at a packed Mountain America Expo Center in Salt Lake City.

The Deseret News reports that among those in attendance was Mayor Jackie Biskupski.

The panel included Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivors, Utah high school students and other activists on the "Road to Change" tour.

Student activists addressed high school students and gun rights advocates covering issues ranging from background checks to bump stocks. Activists then held a question-and-answer session.
