As much as you might sympathize with the students and families of those who were at the center of one of the worst high school shootings in Florida last week, you easily get the impression that their deaths were all for naught. Meaningful gun control is unlikely to happen because of the political power of the National Rifle Association and because the Supreme Court has upheld an individual's right to own guns.

These kids are exhausted of waiting around for their nation's leaders to "act like it for once" - so they've made a decision to do something about it themselves.
Canada shares a similar history with the United States, with a frontier legacy and fairly widespread gun ownership (they even have cowboys!). And instead of waiting for more lives to be lost, they are standing up and speaking up.
