NCDP Statement on March for Our Lives

RALEIGH – NCDP Chair Wayne Goodwin released the following statement as students nationwide, including across North Carolina, participate in March for Our Lives to reduce gun violence:

“Today, as thousands of students across the country and our state march to protest gun violence in our schools, North Carolina Democrats are proud to re-affirm our commitment to meaningful gun reform in North Carolina. Our children deserve to feel safe at school and common-sense proposals like banning bump stocks, raising the assault weapon purchasing age, strengthening background checks, and implementing red-flag policies deserve bipartisan support. The young people marching today are demanding change. It’s time Republican lawmakers listen.”
