The truth is, these anti-gun groups have been behind the scenes organizing all this from day one. Just yesterday, it was reported that Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords advocacy group, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA were backing the March for our Lives Rallies that will take place around the country on March 24th.
The grieving students were just being used by these groups... All the while, they were pretending that none of this had anything to do with politics.
Far from it.
Gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety said on Friday it will donate up to $2.5 million to support marches around the United States on March 24, the date of a planned March For Our Lives in Washington to demand an end to school shootings.
They are calling for the Republican-controlled U.S. Congress to overhaul gun laws to make schools safer in a country where school shootings happen multiple times a year.
The deadly shooting last month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people were killed, gave rise to a student-led movement organizing the planned march in the nation's capital.
Organizers said more than 300 other related events are being organized in support of the march both in the United States and abroad. Everytown will give grants of $5,000 to organizers of up to 500 "sibling" marches, to help with permits, equipment rentals, transportation and other costs.
