The shooting was the 18th mass school shooting; there have been others since.

The students have also targeted the powerful National Rifle Association, a lobbying group for gun manufacturers and sellers with enormous influence in Congress that masquerades as an advocate for gun owners and sportsmen.

Companies have been distancing themselves from the NRA, ending discounts or special offers to the group’s members. The NRA shot back at the fleeing companies, saying “Some corporations have decided to punish NRA membership in a shameful display of political and civic cowardice.”

Lyft, however, is taking a step forward on behalf of gun reform and boldly proclaiming with the thousands of participants that preventing the nonstop gun violence is more important than the interests of gun manufacturers.
