This powerful image is from the March for Our Lives in 2018. The march was organized by students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, FL. The month before an armed student killed and wounded 34 people at their school.

Here are some of the key action steps:
Ban Assault Weapons - These weapons of war were banned from 1994 to 2004 and led to a significant reduction in mass shootings.
UNIVERSAL Background Checks - No exceptions.
Ban Large Capacity Magazines and Bump Stocks - Who needs them?
Implement Red Flag Laws - They save lives, particularly for the over 50% of gun deaths which involve suicide.
Raise the Standards for Gun Ownership - Age 21, Gun Licensing, Training Requirements, Safe Storage, Insurance...
Hold the Gun Industry and Their Lobby (the NRA) Accountable - End immunity and regulate their activities.

Here's some relevant information from other countries.

  • After a 2019 mass shooting in New Zealand, the government amended their gun laws within weeks. There has not been a mass shooting since.
  • A 1996 massacre in Australia resulted in the mandatory buybacks of guns and only one mass shooting has happened since.
  • After a mass shooting in Britain in 1987, the government banned semiautomatic weapons, and after a 1996 shooting they also banned handguns. Britain now has one of the lowest gun-related death rates in the world.
