A gun control rally, a March on Washington, was held on January 26, 2013. The rally against gun violence is a grassroots event that was organized following the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT. Demonstrators included political leaders, activists, members of the theatre community, survivors of the shooting at Virginia Tech, Newtown, Connecticut, and others. Speakers called for the federal government to act now, to change America's gun laws to improve background checks and ban the sale of assault weapons. See the following photos of the gun control rally in Washington DC.
