Nearly 1,000 people marched on Saturday in Washington, D.C., in an effort to call for better gun control.
The group had the victims of Newtown, Connecticut in their minds while they walked. Some held signs with names of gun violence victims while others held signs that said things like "Stop NRA" or "Protect Our Kids, Not Your Guns."
A father of two from Newtown spoke at the march.
"We're living in the middle of a crisis," Dave Ackert said. "Many, many people want to take action. Newtown wants to be remembered as a tipping point for positive change to reduce gun violence."

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said he and the president are going to do whatever it takes to eliminate gun violence.
"Far too many children are growing up in an environment where they are scared," Duncan said. "Our country deserves better than that."
Protestors came from many states, including New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Washington, California, and Alaska.
