"So far!".  After the latest massacres, thousands of people are protesting in the US over tougher gun control laws

Rallies for gun control were held Saturday in Washington, New York, other cities in the United States and around the world to increase pressure on Congress after a series of mass shootings.

In Washington, the son of an 86-year-old victim of the Buffalo supermarket attack said“It’s enough. We will not go quietly at night “The Guardian reports.

meetings March for Our Lives took place less than a month after 10 people were killed in the racist attack in Buffalo, New York, and shortly after 19 children and two teachers were killed at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.

March for Our Lives was formed in 2018 after the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 14 students and 3 adults were killed. Organizers estimated that one million people, mostly young people, had joined the protests since then.

The group has helped Republicans in Florida adopt reforms, including raising the age to buy assault weapons from 18 to 21; establishing a three-day interval between acquisition and access; allowing trained school personnel to carry weapons; and investing $ 400 million in school security.

Florida lawmakers have passed a law that could ban firearms from indiscriminate people, and could pose a danger to themselves or others.

Joaquin Oliver’s parents, a 17-year-old man killed in the Parkland attack, are wearing shirts with a picture of their son.

“I was hoping to avoid participating in a march like this again.”, said Manuel Oliver, sitting next to his wife, Patricia. “Our elected officials betrayed us and avoided the opportunity to end gun violence. “

“All Americans have the right not to be shot,” said Hogg. “Nowhere in the constitution does it say that unrestricted access to weapons of war is a guaranteed right. “

“We have seen the destruction caused by the AR-15. When I look at the innocent children killed at Uvalde, at the tiny coffins, I am horrified. Tiny coffins filled with small, mutilated and beheaded corpses. That should fill us with anger and make demands for change. “.
