Gun control activists tour the USA to honour the 1,206 children killed by guns this year

A staggering 1,206 children aged 17 and under have been killed by a gun so far this year in the United States. That’s according to the Gun Violence Archive, which says there have also been 480 mass shootings.

We went to a protest led by the parents of a teenager killed in the Parkland school shooting in 2018. They’ve been touring the US in a convoy of 23 school buses – one empty seat for every child killed so far this year.
