Less than a week after the deadly shooting at Majory Stoneman Douglas High School, survivors are planning a protest on the nation’s capitol next month, as part of a campaign called “March for Our Lives.”
Survivors of the attack, which left 17 dead, are demanding political leaders take action against gun violence and are aiming their anger mostly at the National Rifle Association and President Donald Trump.
Flags remain at half-staff as the investigation continues. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a review of department procedures after the FBI admitted it missed warning signs that suspect Nikolas Cruz could be plotting an attack.
Cruz, who is charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder, is willing to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty, according to his public defender.
