March For Our Lives | A Rally for Gun Control

Every elected official should be afraid of the inevitable landscape that is soon to change dramatically by the new generation of voters ahead. The 18-24 year old demographic will undoubtedly be the stakeholders in whom will assume office. Get right or get lost! #TimesUp!

Thousands of people all over the U.S. are expected to rally against gun violence Saturday alongside the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for the “March for Our Lives” protest.

The student survivors of the Parkland, Florida massacre have been planning the March 24 rally since shortly after the shooting at their high school on Valentine’s Day that left 17 dead. Officials in Washington, D.C. — where the main March for Our Lives rally is taking place — are preparing for roughly 500,000 people to attend the march, according to the Washington Post. In addition to bolstering subway service throughout the day Saturday, there will be also be a heightened police presence.

“We will ensure that we have plenty of officers on hand to facilitate a peaceful and safe day for the rally,” Washington, D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham told Voice of America.

Satellite March for Our Lives protests are also happening from coast to coast Saturday, including in major cities like New York City, Los Angeles, Portland and Chicago.

Here’s everything we know about the upcoming March for Our Lives, including details about marches in various cities, how the march got started and which celebrities are planning on joining the students on March 24:

March for Our Lives is taking place on March 24, 2018. In Washington, D.C., the march will begin at 12 p.m. (E.T.).

March For Our Lives has a central march in Washington, D.C. that will begin at noon at Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3rd and 12th Street NW. There will be pedestrian entrances at Pennsylvania Avenue and 12th Street, NW; Constitution Avenue and 7th Street, NW; and Indiana Avenue and 7th Street, NW. There is a downloadable map at the March for Our Lives website.

    “I’m a military man and I thing we should ban assault weapons”
    https://nypost.com/2018/02/22/automatic-weapons-dont-belong-in-the-hands-of-everyone/
    Excerpt:

    “I believe, on moral, practical and constitutional grounds, that no private citizen should own an automatic weapon or a semi-automatic weapon that can easily be modified for automatic effects.

    “These are military weapons. Their purpose is to kill human beings. They’re not used for hunting (unless you want to destroy the animal’s meat). They’re lousy for target shooting. But they’re excellent tools for mass murder.

    “The latest school shooter could not have done what he did with a sports rifle or shotgun. The Las Vegas shooter could not have done what he did with hunting arms. No end of school massacres and other slaughters have tallied horrific body counts because of military-grade weapons in the hands of mass murderers.”

  6. If you’re thinking of posting here to smear the Parkland kids because they’re fighting for the right not to get shot while in school, THINK AGAIN. We’re not having it. Take your ass someplace else. 3Chicspolitico is not the place for you.

      • Do you really believe criminals and crazy people care about gun laws? It’s already illegal to murder people. Making it more illegal only stops legal gun owners from defending themselves against the crazys and criminals. Perhaps they don’t teach real history anymore? There’s this little thing called the constitution that says we have certain rights that can’t be infringed.

      There will be gun reform. It’s coming and there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop it. A right to own guns does not trump others right to life. Take your ass on and post your ish someplace else.

      “How to Organize a TOWN HALL FOR OUR LIVES on April 7”
      https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SzEhCm34FuT9xQCFmwYSfHhxXfxV51nDfIM9H0LtiNc/mobilebasic
      Excerpt:

      Hundreds of thousands of us marched across the country on March 24. But that’s only the beginning.

      To take this message directly to lawmakers, we need them to hear us directly–and soon. Every single member of Congress is back in their district on District Work Period–better known as “recess”–between March 23 and April 9. So March for Our Lives has raised the call for a congressional Town Hall in every district in America on April 7.

      This is only possible if Americans in 435 districts rally to organize and mobilize for these events. But Town Hall Project is here to help! Here are 6 simple steps to organizing your Town Hall For Our Lives event.

      (So far, 104 town halls have been scheduled.)

    Video:
    “Guardian News
    Published on Mar 24, 2018
    Yolanda Renee King, granddaughter of Martin Luther King, told the crowd at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington DC: “I have a dream that enough is enough. And that this should be a gun-free world, period.”

    She then asked the crowd to repeat back her words: “Spread the word, have you heard? All across the nation. We are going to be a great generation.”

    She led the chant three times, encouraging the crowd to repeat her words “so the whole world can hear”.
