March for Our Lives, the gun control group started by Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students following the tragic shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday released their comprehensive gun control plan, know as the “Peace Plan.” “We don’t have to live like this: in fear for our lives and our families. The federal government has failed in its responsibility to protect the safety and well-being of the public with regard to the nation’s gun violence epidemic. The time for comprehensive and sweeping reform is now,” the group said on the plan website. “We need ambitious leadership throughout the whole of government to stand in opposition to the gun lobby and industry in order to secure a peaceful America for generations to come.” They established the acronym CHANGE to represent their agenda: Change the standards of gun ownership. Halve the rate of gun deaths in 10 years. Accountability for the gun lobby and industry. Name a Director of Gun Violence Prevention. Generate community-based solutions. Empower the next generation. Specifically the group wants: • a national licensing and registry system. Specifically, gun owners would have to go through in-person interviews with law enforcement, provide personal references, obtain firearm safety training and wait 10 days for each firearm purchase. Licenses would expire every year and requirements would have to be fulfilled again. • to require gun owners to pay an annual licensing fee. • to impose higher fees on bulk firearms and ammo purchases. • to raise the gun ownership age to 21.
