On Saturday, March 24th, protesters around the country will be participating in March For Our Lives rallies, seeking stricter gun control regulations and supporting the many survivors of mass shootings around the nation. It’s going to be a very important day, one that was made possible by the incredible strength of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida shooting. If you’re planning on participating, you’ll probably want to create a sign that gets attention and gets your message out there, and if you’re still looking for something to write, we’ve got plenty of ideas. Below are some gun control quotes for your March For Our Lives sign.
The survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida worked with lawmakers and other shooting survivors to organize March For Our Lives to make sure students’ voices will be heard. There has never been a more important time to fight for stronger gun control laws.
If you want to feel inspired, take a look at these gun control quotes for your March For Our Lives sign, and feel free to borrow them for your own posters and/or social media posts.
Even if you can’t attend a rally, you can voice your opinions by using one of these gun control quotes on social media.
