What do the Marchers want?

 

Mission Statement

Not one more. We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.

Read the full mission statement here.

On their very thorough, well-considered site, students also provide a petition you can sign that includes three central goals:

 

  1. Passing a law to ban the sale of assault weapons.  
  2. Prohibiting the sale of high-capacity magazines.

  3. Closing the loophole in our background check law that allows dangerous people who shouldn’t be allowed to purchase firearms to slip through the cracks and buy guns online or at gun shows.

 

In addition to the petition, the website provides a drop-down tab to start the process of registering to vote.

Plus, there is a section of easy-to-read gun/policy stats that help to educate readers on the issues.

But, will their efforts affect a change? Let’s talk about it.
