In addition to gun reform, they spoke about what they expected from their political leaders.
“You choose not to vote on the side of students lives, that’s completely up to you. And if you choose not to vote on the side of just human lives that are innocently taken thousands of people every year, that’s okay because we’ll vote you out, it’s as simple as that,” said David Hogg, one of the students behind #NeverAgainMSD.
“Bullets don’t discriminate either, why should we? If a bullet can catch you no matter who you are, what color skin you have, what gender you are, what position you play in life, how old you are, then why should we discriminate against who should be protected,” said Emma Gonzalez.MORE NEWS: 1 Dead, 1 Injured After Truck Slams Into Spectators At Stonewall Pride Parade In Wilton Manors
