The Florida Department of Education site shows 2,740,856 students for 2016-17. They are joined by a wide web of hundreds of thousands of educators and their family and friends who have been motivated by the brave, outspoken student survivors of the tragic mass shooting at Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School.
This demographic, most of whom are registered voters, are acutely aware that the majority of Republican legislators and politicians, from the state level to the White House, are controlled by the National Rifle Association, obviously displayed by the pathetic result that they cannot vote into law,common sense gun control, supported by the vast percentage of our fellow citizens.
Change is necessary and that change will be decided at the ballot box. Remember the now famous rallying cry from shooting survivor, Emma Gonzalez, after the banal, rambling response to their pleas by politicians, including the president, “We call B.S.”
