Florida High School Students Take on Role of Gun Control Activists

Wiki

Students from the Florida High School where the recent shooting took place are calling for gun control, even though Nikolas Cruz passed a background check and obtained his AR-15 gun legally.  The gun control lobby is now recruiting young students, especially those who are approaching the age of 18 [and eligible to vote] for their newest campaign, ‘March for Our Lives’, which will include a march on Washington and student protests across the country on March 24th.  The group is affiliated with ‘Everytown for Gun Safety’ that is funded by former NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

They are angry. They are channeling their pain and stepping into the harsh spotlight of a heated and ongoing national debate. They are shielding their peers who feel too devastated to do the same.

They are the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting that left 17 dead and more than a dozen others injured — and the founders of a movement they’re calling: “Never Again.”

“We are going to be the kids that you read about in textbooks — not because we are going to be another statistic about mass shootings in America, but because we are going to be last mass shooting,” 18-year-old senior Emma Gonzalez said during a gun control rally in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday. She said she wrote her speech on the back of her notes from her Advanced Placement government class.

Hundreds of people stood in the covered courtyard of the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale demanding specific policy changes following the nation’s deadliest high school shooting: A ban on assault weapons. Stricter background checks and an age requirement for gun purchases. Laws that keep guns away from mentally ill people who want to use them to kill.

The message local teenagers sent to the adults in charge was raw and cutting. They held signs that said: “My friends died for what?” and “Money killed my friends.” At one point they stood in a group and chanted: “You are responsible.”

On Sunday morning, the student leaders made an announcement to a captive nation: They will lead a “March for Our Lives” in Washington, D.C., on March 24, and they invited communities across the country to hold simultaneous protests calling for an end to mass school shootings.

is there anyone who can get a court order to stop the demolition of the building where this 2/15 shooting left 17 dead? this is a pattern. can someone get an independent, outside examination of the crime scene? ballistic reports of all the bullets found in the walls or hospital patients? proof that they came from Nicholas Cruz’s gun? I think he was set up just like Lee Harvey Oswald was. it’s all too neat and tidy. what is most convincing for me is the comment the blond girl made joking with him: “I’m surprised you weren’t the shooter” and… Read more »
