Shorewood Students To March For Gun Reforms

Shorewood students plan to march Wednesday and have a sit-down meeting with Congresswoman Gwen Moore over gun control.
SHOREWOOD, WI — Students at Shorewood High School are reportedly continuing their advocacy for more comprehensive gun laws, and are planning to march Wednesday and meet with a local congresswoman.
On Wednesday, May 2, 2018, students from Shorewood are planning to walk out of school for the “Am I Next?” Student March for Gun Reform.
According to organizers of the march, students will begin on the front lawn of Shorewood Middle School in Shorewood, where they will rally until 9 a.m. Students will then travel to Downtown Milwaukee where they will march past Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-Wisconsin) office, 517 E. Wisconsin Ave. and end at Congresswoman Gwen Moore’s (D-Milwaukee) office, 316 N. Milwaukee St.
Organizers say students will participate in a meeting with Moore to discuss gun reform and laws as they demand an assault rifle ban for civilian use, accessories that turn semi-automatic weapons into automatic weapons (such as bump stocks), a four day waiting period after every gun purchase and universal background checks.
The march will begin at 8:00 a.m. The meeting with Moore will be held from 11:15 a.m. to 11:45 a.m., and students will arrive back to school after lunch.
