These are the best March for Our Lives protest signs we've seen so far
The March for Our Lives kicked off on Saturday, with hundreds and thousands of marchers descending on Washington DC to protest the inaction of Congress to tighten gun laws in the US. The gun violence protest came about following the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 students and teachers dead. Survivors of the shooting are among those at the rally, including marches that have popped up across the rest of the nation too.
Images of the huge crowds that gathered to protest are spectacular, especially given that it has been primarily teenage students at the forefront of the effort. The survivors of the February 14 shooting organised the rally, and all featured speakers were set to be teenagers. While the young gun control activists are heading the movement, the masses have chosen to participate too, all hoping to see more sensible regulations that match the standards of the rest of the developed world.
And as always, the public protest has generated some incredible hand-made signs. Many of them slam the NRA and politicians who appear to be prioritising their funding from the Rifle Association over the all-too-frequent occurrences of school shootings. While some of them are damning, others are just damn funny in a clever way too. Here are 15 of the best.
1. Excellent point
3. It's not just a problem for schools either
4. Not part of the job description
5. Get your priorities straight
6. Things need to change
7. Well played
9. So true
10. Seriously though
11. Well, if there's no other way...
12. Should kids really be forced to talk sense into the adults?
13. You're probably not wrong at all
14. This whole debate is absurd, right?
15. A scary thought
Powerful stuff, huh? Despite the fact that Trump turned a blind eye to the worldwide protests by sauntering off to his vacation home, hopefully congress sees that the majority of the nation is demanding improved regulations.
