One million students walked out last week. This Saturday’s march could draw more students, plus their parents and neighbors. The D party is identifying races where gun safety voters might make a difference. Conor Lamb, the D who just won an upset in western PA, is hardly an advocate for stricter gun laws. Still, he scared the NRA into dumping $$$ into the loser’s race.
- Tues. Mar. 20; 6p: Open mic for students on gun safety @City Hall
- Sat. Mar. 24; 11a: March for our Lives (gun safety) @City Hall
More events all around town.

Except for Sen. Brown, no local MoCs support common sense gun safety. Tell them you do, and you aren’t going away.

IS THIS TIME DIFFERENT?
D candidates must focus on health care and the economy. But many voters drawn to these issues are also parents who agree with their kids that enough is enough. Gun safety won’t help everywhere. But in some races it might be enough, especially if 18-year old students and their parents vote in Nov.
