About "Protesting Gun Violence"
On Saturday, March 24, thousands of young people across the United States gathered in cities to march and protest gun violence, brought to light most recently by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The Parkland shooting, the worst school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012, spurred individuals to speak out and demand legal reform to address the epidemic of violence. Last week, an estimated 1 million students national participated in a class walk out as a part of a 17-minute protest against government inaction on school safety reform.
In response to the increasing protests, gun rights activists held counter rallies, increasing their cries for the need for fourth amendment gun protections. These protests were largely drowned out by the wider demand for increased safety. Most attention the counter protests have received has been condemning, with critics asking how anyone could respond to child shooting protests with callous gun rights arguments. Policy makers have yet to decide how to handle growing public unrest and safety concerns for America’s youth.
