With the Republican Party headed by Donald Trump adamantly refusing to take any action to curb the epidemic of gun violence infecting our country from coast to coast, it’s fallen to the American people to take up the challenge.


After the Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida mass shooting last week during which seventeen people were killed and fifteen wounded when a young man entered the school and opened fire with an AR-15 style rifle, the surviving students are speaking out and advocating for gun reform.

They are planning a massive march on March 24 to demand gun control and challenge the NRA’s stranglehold on the Republican Party.

Massacres like this have become a fixture of American life, and it’s far past time Congress take action to prevent the murders of more children.

Local police escorted the student activists to ensure their safety en route to Stoneman Douglas. Other schools in the region also witnessed mass walkouts, with some students headed to the state capital of Tallahassee to stage their protests. Several news networks shared footage of some of the students and several students tweeted out images and videos from the event.

It’s absolutely pathetic that the GOP is so beholden to its gun lobbyist donors and firearm fetishists that it’s willing to ignore the wholesale slaughter of American children. They must be shamed into passing gun control legislation, and brave kids are leading the charge.
