Ahead of next week’s March For Our Lives, Parkland student David Hogg wonders in an ad touting the event, “What if our politicians weren’t the bitch of the NRA?”

Currently, someone can legally buy a semi-automatic at age 18, including the former student who allegedly perpetrated the latest school slaughter in Florida.
