Parkland shooting student survivor David Hogg slammed the NRA and politicians that support the gun lobby group during a speech at the March For Our Lives event in Washington D.C.
When politicians say that your voice doesn’t matter because the NRA owns them, we say no more! When politicians send their thoughts and prayers with no action, we say no more! And to those politicians supported by the NRA, that allow the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say, “get your resumes ready.”
Today is the beginning of Spring. And tomorrow is the beginning of democracy. Now is the time to come together not as Democrats, not as Republicans, but as Americans. Americans of the same flesh and blood that care about one thing and one thing only and that’s the future of this country and the children that are going to lead it.
We will come together. We will get ready of these public servants that only serve the gun lobby. And we will save lives. You are those heroes. Let’s put the USA over the NRA. This is the start of the spring and the blossoming of our democracy.
Let’s take this to our local legislators and let’s take this to midterm elections because without the persistence of voters everywhere getting out to every election, democracy can’t flourish. I say we will not stop until every man, every woman, every child, and every American can live without fear of gun violence.
