Lauren Jauregui, Zendaya & More Praise Emma Gonzalez For Her Gun Control Speech

If you didn’t watch or hear about Emma Gonzalez‘s compelling speech about gun control over the weekend, then it’s required viewing starting right now.

Emma, a Parkland shooting survivor, spoke at an anti-gun rally, promising that Parkland will be the last school shooting in America.

“We are going to be the last mass shooting,” she said. “…That’s going to be Marjory Stoneman Douglas in that textbook, and it’s all going to be due to the tireless efforts of the school board, the faculty members, the family members and most importantly the students.”

Emma also spoke out about President Trump‘s response to the shooting and against the NRA.

“If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a terrible tragedy, and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I’m going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association. But hey, you want to know something? It doesn’t matter, because I already know: $30 million. … To every politician who is taking donations from the NRA, shame on you!”

Lauren Jauregui, Zendaya, Emeraude Toubia, Aimee Carrero, Sophia Bush and Ashley Tisdale have all sent their support on social media to Emma and praised her speech.

She keeps me up night. This haunted girl, forever changed by what happened to her. To the 17 dead in #Florida • I say the following as a gun owner. As a girl who got her 1st .22 rifle for her 12th bday. Who was on the range firing an AR-15 just 2wks ago. So please, if you’re a 2A supporter who naively assumes that that I’m anti-gun bc “Hollywood,” don’t. • I’m a heartbroken citizen. It’s taken me days to write this. To speak without screaming. Or weeping. Enough is ENOUGH. My right to a hobby is NOT more valuable than a child’s right to get an education without being slaughtered. Hobbies are not worth more than their lives. “Hunting!” If you need an AR-15 to hit a deer or an elk, you’re a shit hunter. “2A!” Gun laws do NOT equate to taking all guns. They don’t. ALSO 2A wasn’t written about assault weapons. Or glocks. It was written about muskets. It was written by flawed people who thought we should be able to own other human beings. So sit. Down. Take a deep breath. When the logic hits you, admit that using such an old idea to justify this unforeseen reality is a failure. • We’ve averaged a school shooting every 60hrs in 2018. NOT okay! “Mental illness” doesn’t kill 10s of 1000s in countries w/ sensible gun legislation. Know why? Because it’s NOT mental illness that kills people. It’s access to assault weapons that have no business being in civilian hands. We are failing our kids bc the NRA has shrouded its profit-hunting in a political cloak. This isn’t political. This is common sense. One child in America was killed by lawn darts. ONE. They were banned forever. One man tried to blow up his shoe on a plane & now forever we all have to take off our shoes at the airport. We know how to protect people. But profit seeking greed machines want to make money no matter what. I’m with #EmmaGonzalez. I call BS. We can pass gun laws & you can keep your hobbies. Concessions will have to be made. I’m willing to make them. If you watched the video of her classmates screaming during their executions & you’re not? I won’t even bother praying for you. But I will be marching. Corporate greed does NOT get to kill our kids. These kids said ”we are the last time.” I’m with them.
