‘You can’t fix stupid but you can vote it out’: Here are some of the best signs from the March for Our Lives protests

Hundreds of thousands of protesters descended on cities across the United States and around the world on Saturday, as gun-control activists and survivors participated in the “March for Our Lives” rally.

Attendees were pushing for gun reform and demanding an end to the type of violence that took the lives of 17 students and staff members at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, last month.

Protest signs were out in full swing – many of them were at turns angry, hopeful, clever, or just all-around entertaining.

Here are some of the best signs of the day:


Some people found creative ways to express their outrage.
