‘March For Our Lives’ tour makes stop in the Bronx

THE BRONX -

Survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, were welcomed to the borough Friday.

The students are on a “March For Our Lives” national tour where they are putting guns and gun violence in the national spotlight.

"For a moment to become an issue, you need to include everyone that’s affected by the issue,” said Parkland survivor and activist David Hogg. “Regardless if you're worried about bullets coming from inside your classroom or outside, they're still coming from guns. And that's gun violence."

The group met members of Save Our Streets, which performs anti-violence outreach work every day in the borough.

The day’s events were organized by Assemblyman Michael Blake.

“We have to show the country that we're not just going to talk about gun violence when a tragedy happens,” said the assemblyman.
