The NRA should have never messed with the Parkland kids--they were relentless and often faced off with NRA spokespeople or politicians in national forums. They shamed Rick Scott into quietly canceling his appearance at the NRA’s annual conference. (Others withdrew soon afterward.) Rightwing FL politicians actually discussed supporting a ban on assault rifles. Then Rick Scott, who wanted to be Florida’s new senator, was forced into signing into law o ur first significant gun restrictions in decades. The Parklend kids registered students across the nation for the 2018 midterms, delivering young voters to the polls in record numbers, which helped elect 64 freshman Democrats and forced over 30-backed NRA politicians out of office.
