On March 24, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets of various cities across the United States to fight gun violence. Following the terrifying Parkland massacre, students have been making the continuous effort to change gun laws.

This time, celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, and many more, joined young people to speak at the rally and protest for the end of gun violence. And Paul McCartney was not an exception.

The 75-year-old star joined students in New York City, just a few blocks away from the site John Lennon was killed almost 40 years ago. In 1980, The Beatles band-member was returning from the studio with his wife when Mark David Chapman shot him dead.

Of course, this tragic experience has greatly affected McCartney. Since one of his best friends died in gun violence, he understands the importance of ending it. As the legend said:

I don’t know [if we can end gun violence]. But this is what we can do, so I’m here to do it.

And we hope these actions will bring positive change!

Actually, the crowd marching on weekend exceeded all expectations, with 800 thousand people in attendance! It seems there were more people than at the President Donald Trump’s inauguration. There’s no official crowd size, but the size is believed to be 300-600 thousand.
