Protestors At ‘March For Our Lives’ Rally Push For Additional Gun Control

An estimated several hundred thousand protesters gathered in Washington DC and in cities across the United States on Saturday to push for additional gun control legislation. At the demonstration in the nation’s capitol, a dozen celebrities were in attendance and several — Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, and Demi Lovato — took the main stage to perform.

Several big-name celebrities including Oprah Winfrey and Taylor Swift funded the event. George and Amal Clooney reportedly paid for water at the march.

Other celebrities lent their support for the gun-control march.

Some students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 students and faculty were shot and killed last month, were also in attendance and spoke. Student Cameron Kasky, told lawmakers they ought to push for more restrictions on guns, or “beware.”

David Hogg, who along with several of his classmates was featured on the cover of Time magazine and has been making the rounds on cable TV, hit the National Rifle Association and Sen. Marco Rubio, claiming the Florida senator took $1.05 for every Florida student’s life, an apparent reference to the donations Rubio has received from the NRA.

One student threw up on stage during her speech, but regained her composure and kept speaking.

Hogg wasn’t the only person who criticized Rubio at the march.
