‘THE LAST MASS SHOOTING’

Florida Shooting Survivors Vow to Shame Lawmakers at D.C. March

Teenage survivors of Wednesday’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school are organizing a march in Washington next month to demand new gun control laws. Speaking on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, Cameron Kasky, one Marjory Stoneman Douglas High student involved in the event, said those who survived the massacre that killed 17 people are determined to “create a new normal where there’s a badge of shame on any politician who's accepting money from the NRA.” He said students want to get their message across to President Trump, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Gov. Rick Scott “to give them the opportunity to be on the right side of this.” Kasky and four of his classmates are planning a series of demonstrations across the country, with the first one, called “March for Our Lives,” to take place in D.C. on March 24, he said. Emma Gonzalez, another survivor involved in organizing the march, gave a powerful speech Saturday in which she “called BS” on Trump and lawmakers who play down the need for stricter gun control. Gonzalez vowed to be a driving force of gun control efforts, saying through tears that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High “will be the last mass shooting.”
