On March 24th, with a crowd of over 200,000, students from over 3,000 schools came together to march for their safety in the #MarchForOurLives. Along with the main D.C. march, over 800 marches across the country were organized. The Stoneman Douglas High School shooting (which lead to numerous lives lost), was the catalyst for this series of marches, and has been described as a tipping point for gun control legislation. With a mission to assure that no other political agenda supersedes the notion to adjust gun laws to ensure public safety, especially for children in schools. Many of the students created signs, chants and t-shirts at the marches to let their voice be heard.
This movement was not created by middle America. This is movement is driven by the Democrat [Socialists] Party and an organization which is already known for it’s gun-control goals. Due to recent events, the movement has grown rapidly with support from numerous celebrities and political figures.
