SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Student gun control advocates and one of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting on Sunday completed a 50-mile, four-day march in Massachusetts to the headquarters of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson, where they protested gun violence and weapons manufacturing.

More than 100 protesters rallied outside company headquarters in Springfield. They held American flags and signs that read “We Can End Gun Violence” and “Books not Bullets.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The marchers condemned Smith & Wesson for making the rifle used in the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The group wants the company to donate $5 million to gun violence research.

Protesters said they also want the company stop making weapons outlawed under Massachusetts’ 2004 assault weapons ban. That law mirrors a federal ban that expired in 2004.

Their protest came as news broke of a fatal mass shooting during a video game tournament at a riverfront mall in Jacksonville, Florida.

  1. I am so sick of these children and misguided adults that have zero clue what they are talking about. I wish that they would protest something that really mattered like the violence that the criminals commit with guns, and how they plan to solve that problem. Protesting for a company to not make a weapon that it isn’t making in the first place is the height of idiocy and ignorance.

    When I see these stupid people it reminds me of a saying from my mother “someone should have dumped bleach in that end of the gene pool” I know that is harsh but man sometimes listening to them speak brings that thought to mind.
