Several gun control advocacy organizations plan to meet Saturday morning for a rally outside a Coral Springs Walmart, to call on the company to stop selling weapons.
The Coral Springs site is nearby the city of Parkland, which itself saw a deadly mass shooting in 2018 that claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The site of Saturday’s rally is less than a mile from Stoneman Douglas.
Activists plan to arrive at the Walmart, located at 6001 Coral Ridge Drive, at 11 a.m. The rally will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The groups say they aim to push Walmart to stop selling guns and providing political donations to lawmakers who have earned the support of the NRA.
Walmart’s CEO, Doug McMillon, recently promised a “thoughtful and deliberate” response to that shooting. Thus far, he has not provided specifics.
