February 14 will mark one year since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and educators were killed and 17 more were wounded. In the year since this unspeakable tragedy, Americans have come together to deliver a unified message to our elected leaders: Enough is enough.
Students, parents, gun violence survivors and Americans of all walks of life have spent the past year urging lawmakers to reject the gun lobby’s dangerous agenda and demand gun violence prevention policies that will save lives. The results of this advocacy speak for themselves. Since Parkland, 20 states and Washington, D.C. have passed new gun violence prevention policies, including nine with Republican governors.
