It was the Parkland school shooting massacre that happened on Valentine’s Day in Florida that has ignited the current nationwide debate on gun control.  

The March For Our Lives demonstrations seek to call attention to the need for common sense gun reform that prevents tragic like this from happening.

Cruz remains in custody in Florida, charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.
