Hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets as part of student-led March For Our Lives rallies in cities across the country and around the globe to demand comprehensive gun control legislation in an effort to end mass shootings. To help amplify their message, marchers have turned to markers, crayons, paint, glitter, and poster boards. But while signs at March For Our Lives rallies vary in how they get their thoughts across, the message is largely the same: We want change.
"The children of this country can no longer go to school in fear that each day could be their last," March For Our Lives organizers said in a statement on their event's official website.
March For Our Lives organizers are demanding lawmakers ban the sale of assault weapons, nothing that "of the 10 deadliest shootings over the last decade, seven involved the use of assault weapons." Organizers' list of demands also includes restricting the sale of high-capacity magazines and closing loopholes in current background check laws. According to organizers this loophole "allows dangerous people who shouldn't be allowed to purchase firearms to slip through the cracks and buy guns online or at gun shows."
Here are some of the best signs spotted at March For Our Lives rallies on Saturday.
