Alex Wind, a Marjory Stoneman pupil and a founding member of the By no means Once more motion, responded to experiences that the president additionally will communicate on the NRA assembly.
"Y$3 ou're telling me to make the VP safe there aren't any weapons around but when it comes to children they want guns everywhere? Can someone explain this to me?"
Trump is also expected to appear at the event.
Teens who survived the February 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where 17 people were killed, are wondering why the NRA fiercely resists extending the same safety considerations to other areas to safeguard children.
