Protestors stood outside the National Rife Association's (NRA) headquarters in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday to mark the two-month anniversary of the mass shooting at the Parkland, Fla., high school.

The crowd, including Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor Aalayah Eastmond, gathered outside the NRA headquarters two months to the day that the Florida mass shooting left 17 people dead.

Those gathered held signs reading “Sensible Gun Laws Now” and “NRA Stop Killing Our Kids" while chanting “hey hey, ho ho, the NRA has got to go.”

Eastmond was scheduled to address the crowd, as was a student from Newtown, Conn. — the site of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting — and students at local Virginia and Maryland high schools who are involved in protests for gun control.


Students from George Mason Elementary School in Alexandria, Va., also joined the protest, according to Patch.

Parkland shooting survivors have emerged as vocal advocates in the months since the mass shooting, and hosted the March for Our Lives rally in D.C. last month protesting gun violence.

Some survivors have slammed the NRA and lawmakers backed by the group for their efforts opposing new gun restrictions. The NRA has also been critical of the Parkland students.
