Residents of Newtown, Connecticut gathered with thousands of others on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Saturday for a march in favor of gun control. About 100 people traveled from Newtown, the scene of the December elementary school massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults. The march included participants from New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia as well. They marched down Constitution Avenue toward the Washington Monument, where speakers called for a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition. Education Secretary Arne Duncan addressed the crowd, vowing that he and President Obama would work to enact gun control policies.
