Emotions are running raw across the United States, after last week’s deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Authorities said the suspected gunman used a semi-automatic rifle to kill 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Under the rallying cry of #NeverAgain, grieving teenagers and young survivors are staging protests against gun violence and demanding gun reform.
