Young people across the US are calling for stricter gun laws after a mass shooting that killed 17 students and staff at a high school in Parkland, Florida, last week.

Most of those leading the calls for change were not born when Congress last approved gun-control legislation in 1994.

They are up against the National Rifle Association (NRA), a powerful gun lobby, which remains opposed to any new restrictions.

But is the mood changing in a country that has more mass shootings than any other?
