School safety advocates demonstrated outside the offices of the National Rifle Association in Virginia on Saturday to mark the two-month anniversary of the shooting in Parkland, Fla., that killed 17 people and injured 17 others.
The protesters outside the NRA's Fairfax headquarters included Aalayah Eastmond, who survived the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, The Hill reports.
They carried signs reading "NRA Stop Killing Our Kids" and "Sensible Gun Laws Now" — while chanting: "Hey hey, ho ho, the NRA has got to go."
The Stoneman Douglas shooting survivors have been strong advocates for gun control and ending school gun violence, sponsoring the lobbying of Florida and congressional lawmakers for tighter gun restrictions and organizing the "March for Our Lives" rally in Washington last month.
Some survivors have also bashed the NRA and legislators supported by the association for opposing their gun-control efforts while the NRA has attacked the students back, the Hill reports.
