The protests come in the wake of the February 14 shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead. The March For Our
Lives website states that the purpose of the event is to “come together to support the national movement calling on lawmakers to make students’ safety a priority and pass common sense gun legislation.”

  1. It is interesting how these marches are either in sh it communities such as Vallejo or Oakland or in cities where white people feel guilty for their success and think that posters and chanting is going to help the ghetto communities.
    What losers.
