The tour that the Florida survivors are on, may actually help make a change.
Many companies are beginning to end their relationships with the organization after social media called for a boycott. Best Western, Wyndham Hotels, Alamo Rent A Car, National Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent A Car, First National Bank of Omaha are just a few that have separated from the NRA in the past 24 hours. These companies offered discounts to members of the NRA, but those discounts will end on March 26th.
Students teachers and parents are calling for a ban of assault rifles like the AR-15, the gun used to kill 17 people in the Florida school shooting.
On Wednesday night, the students and parents were able to speak openly with Florida Senator Marco Rubio and an NRA (National Rifle Association) spokesperson. When Rubio was asked to stop taking donations from the NRA, he declined, but did say he supports children being safe at school and any law that will keep a gun out of a killers hand.
Following this town meeting, the NRA chief, Wayne LaPierre had a few words of his own. He told his thoughts on Democrats wanting to take away freedoms by taking away the second amendment right to bear arms, and shared his solution to put armed security guards on school campuses instead of trying to make new guns laws.
The NRA is one of the main organizations attacked by the Florida survivors due to their strong support in guns and donations into politicians like Marco Rubio and Donald Trump.
No word yet from the NRA.

Earlier this week, two sex tapes of Blac Chyna were released.
Two different angles: one close up in POV mode of her giving oral, and another from far away like a tripod was set up of her having sex. Well clearly she can’t say the POV wasn’t her, but she is saying the actual sex scene was not of her.
Her ex boyfriend, Mechie has already said the POV was of him and Chyna. A video recorded on only her phone, so there is no clear idea as to how it was leaked. As fas as the 13-minute sex tape, we have no idea who that man was and Chyna says it was not her either. Chyna claims the woman in the video is just a look-a-like. Someone with the same skin tone, body type and hairstyle as her.
Chyna plans on taking legal action against whoever leaked the POV. Her lawyers have sent out more than 20 cease and desist letters to porn sites who are titling the other sex tape with her name, since she says that is not her.

The talk of gun control is back after the recent shooting in Florida. The survivors and parents feel the NRA, National Rifle Association, is partly to blame for the incident, being that they feel so strongly about their rights to guns and pay politicians to keep guns around.
The NRA chief, Wayne LaPierre, has decided to speak out, and his solution to the gun problem is to have armed security guards on the campuses of schools. LaPierre argues that Democrat want to “make you, all of you, less free,” by putting more restrictions on guns. He feels we do not need new guns laws, we should just enforce existing ones, allowing us to keep our second amendment right to bear arms.
LaPierre also went on to partly blame the FBI for not following better protocol when first being made aware of Nikolas Cruz, the Florida shooter. The NRA has made it known that they support a few of Trump’s ideas to arm teachers who receive special training and to raise the minimum age of purchase of assault rifles.
The survivors of the Florida school shooting last month, are continuing their fight against gun violence.
On Wednesday night, students and parents attended a town hall meeting to share thoughts and concerns with Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio and NRA spokespeople. There were two clear sides of the argument. Students and parents want better gun laws, and the support of Rubio, which in there opinion, means he should stop taking donations from the NRA. Sen. Rubio defended his stance on gun rights and the second amendment, while assuring survivors that he will keep them safe.
Even though no straight answer was ever given, Rubio did say he will “support any law that will prevent a killer like this from getting a gun.” That statement brings us to the concern at hand, making it harder for individuals to get guns. Rubio also stated that he supports raising the gun buying age to 21 from 18, he is open to reconsidering the six of gun magazine clips, he does not agree with Trump’s idea of arming teachers, and he gave his proposal of gun violence retraining orders, which allows parents/guardians to prevent someone from purchasing guns and gun can be taken from that person.
The students have planned two events:a National School Walk Out on March 14 and a March for Our Lives on March 24. Both events are geared towards Congress to pay more attention to stopping gun violence and having more gun control in our country.
The Walk Out calls for students, faculty, parents, and others to walk out of school for 17 minutes — one minute for each person who was killed in the Florida school shooting. And for the March for Our Lives, students and activists plan to march on Washington, DC, and other US cities.
