March For Our Lives
Washington DC, USA - March 24, 2018
Stunned by the school shooting in Parkland Florida, that left 17 dead, students have mobilized across the United States to organize rallies and a national walkout on March 24 in support of stronger gun laws, challenging politicians they say have failed to protect them.
Under the banner ‘March For Our Lives’ the largest gathering is expected in U.S. capital Washington DC, where up to half a million people are expected to attend.
Gun violence on public school and college campuses has become so commonplace in the United States during the past several years that education officials regularly stage drills to train students and staff about what they should do in the event of a mass shooting on school grounds.
Gun ownership is protected by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and remains one of the nation’s more divisive issues. A federal ban on assault weapons, in force for 10 years, expired in 2004.
