In the aftermath of the devastating school shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead on February 14, survivors are speaking out about gun control laws in the United States. The resulting conversation is taking place on a national scale and, now, it's prompting some companies to reconsider their affiliations with the National Rifle Association (NRA).
