In the wake of the Valentine’s Day Parkland shooting, there have been many marches and protests, all seeking some level of gun reform. On Wednesday, March 14 exactly one month from the massacre, students marched out of class for a duration of 17 minutes, one minute for every life lost, in an act of solidarity, demanding change from congress. On March 24th, Never Again MSD organized the “March for Our Lives” in DC as well as nationally. Again, this march was seeking gun reform and action from congress.
This week’s episode of We Need To Talk will focus on Congressional progress (or lack thereof) since the shooting as well as the much debated topic of politicizing children and teenagers. This week's panel consists of Carmen Lodato a gun violence survivor, Aaron Overman from Gays Against Guns, and Amber Athey from the Daily Caller.
