The National Rifle Association (NRA) spends $250 million annually to advocate for pro-gun legislation. How do you fight for common sense gun laws while facing such a powerful Goliath? One idea was to hold a graduation ceremony for The Lost Class, the 3,044 students who would have graduated this year if they hadn’t been killed by a gun. Two well-known gun advocates then gave the commencement address to the 3,044 empty chairs representing these lost students, ultimately turning pro-gun advocates into anti-gun spokespeople.
