Survivors of Parkland High School Massacre Unveil Plan to Curb Gun Violence

HeadlineAug 22, 2019

Parkland student activists who survived the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida have unveiled an ambitious plan to tackle gun violence. The March for Our Lives “Peace Plan” would create a national gun licensing and registry system, ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and create a national buy-back program for firearms. It would also see federal officials declare a national emergency around gun violence, name a national director of gun violence prevention, and would register eligible voters and mail voter registration cards to all Americans when they turn 18.
