A conversation about the March for Our Lives demonstrations in Phoenix

A lead organizer for the March for Our Lives demonstrations discusses the organization’s goals for gun reform in Arizona


In this episode of Forks Estate, Cassandra Laubach has a conversation with March for Our Lives organizer and high school student Jordan Harb about his goals for gun reform in Arizona. Harb said that the March for Our Lives movement has taken on a three-point stance: universal background checks, a ban on bump stocks and more funding for school counselors. Harb said that universal background checks are important because he believes that it is too easy to purchase a gun in Arizona from sources such as gun shows. Harb also mentioned that he believes that more funding for counselors at schools will help students receive the help they need before a school shooting would happen. Those who did not agree with March for Our Lives' stance told AZ Central that they viewed gun restrictions as a violation to their Second Amendment rights, and that they think that the best way to protect students is to arm teachers.
