The NRA will face students from Parkland, Florida, where a school shooting killed 17 people last week, at a CNN town hall Wednesday night. The students have been advocating for gun reform in the aftermath of the tragedy and calling on politicians to stop accepting contributions from the NRA.

The details: The NRA will be represented by spokeswoman Dana Loesch, and the Parkland students will be joined by family and community members. Florida Rep. Ted Deutch and Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio will also attend. The town hall will be televised from Sunrise, Florida at 9 p.m. ET with CNN's Jake Tapper moderating.
