Many people marched through Washington D.C. for more gun control. Marchers held up many signs, among them some read: “we are sandy hook” and “Gun Control now”. Also among the marchers where about 100 residents of Newtown, Connecticut who traveled together in honor of last December's shooting.

Leading the crowd were marchers with "We Are Sandy Hook" signs, paying tribute to victims of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut in December.

The crowd stretched for at least two blocks along Constitution Avenue.

Participants held signs reading "Gun Control Now" and "Background checks save lives" among other messages.

Other signs were simple and white, with the names of victims of gun violence.

About 100 residents from Newtown, where a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six teachers, travelled to Washington together, organisers said.
