In the wake of the mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school last month, hundreds of rallies will take place Saturday to protest the scourge of gun violence in America and the maddening unwillingness of Congressional lawmakers to address the issue in a meaningful way. “March for Our Lives” was spearheaded by students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 people were killed on Valentine’s Day this year.
