Officials at a Florida school where 17 people were killed in February implemented a new safety measure requiring students carry clear backpacks - but teens at the high school are lashing out saying the bookbags will not keep them safe and is an invasion of privacy. "But it made me feel better because we all looked the same".

One student's response to the clear backpack rule.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham apologized under pressure last week for taunting a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland as several companies confirmed they would pull advertising from her show. They organised protests, starting with the March for Our Lives rallies last month and the #NeverAgain social media movement which has raised money to help fight for tighter gun control laws in the US.

'Unless they're bulletproof, I don't feel much safer, ' student Cameron Kasky tweeted, sharing a photo of his clear backpack filled with tampons.

"A lot of the people I've talked to are dreading going back", Robinson told CNN.

"It feels like being punished..."

Students also saw beefed up security on the first day back.

Once inside, they were issued mandatory see-through backpacks and ID badges which must be worn at all times. Student Josh Gallagher said, "This clear backpack idea is to give us kids a false sense of security and now has enraged most of the students here at MSD". As much as I appreciate the effort we as a country need to focus on the real issue instead of turning our schools into prisons, ' she said. "Similar to what they do at court houses and the airport!" he said.

Koerber and others have attached an orange $1.05 price tag to their bags which they say is meant to protest politicians, including Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who accept money from the National Rifle Association.

It's unclear whether students will be allowed to have a bag within their backpack to hide personal items.

Junior Jack Macleod said he is not opposed to the clear backpacks if they are used with other safety measures, such as metal detectors or wands.

Do you agree with the criticisms being leveled against the student survivors of the Douglas High School shooting by right wing and NRA supporters?

Senior Carmen Lo also sported the price tag on her backpack and additionally put a sign inside that read, "this backpack is probably worth more than my life".
