They all delivered passionate performances at the March For Our Lives rally in Washington, which took place after 17 people were killed in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Florida last month.

Since then, students have been leading a political movement to tighten gun controls and end school shootings in America.

Support for gun control is highest among 18 to 29-year-olds, a study by the Pew Research Centre says. There was a spike after the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016.
But Run The Jewels rapper Killer Mike has different views.

In a video posted by NRATV he describes himself as “very pro-second amendment” (the right to own guns written in the US Constitution).

There are nearly as many guns as people in the USA – around 90 for every 100 people.

During the interview, Killer Mike criticises those who think they are “woke” to the cause for tighter gun control in America, saying: “You’re a lackey of the progressive movement, because you’ve never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do.”
