Survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting released a plan on Wednesday calling for an assault weapons ban and a national gun-buyback program, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel is reporting.

Organizers vowed to push for support of their “Peace Plan for a Safer America” ahead of the 2020 elections.

Activist David Hogg, who was a student last year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when 17 people were shot and killed, said survivors are “stepping up.”

“Policymakers have failed, so survivors are stepping up,” he tweeted. “The #PeacePlan is written by a generation that’s only ever known lockdown drills, But we WILL be the last. We’re not just fighting against the status quo, we’re fighting for real changes, for justice, for peace.”

The proposal was officially announced by the student group, March for Our Lives. The group wants every presidential candidate to endorse it.

The plan also would mandate that Americans obtain a license to own a gun. The process would include background checks, in-person interviews, personal references, gun safety training, and a 10-day waiting period, according to the Sentinel.

It also would involve the appointment of a Cabinet-level officer to deal with reducing gun violence.
