Tens of thousands gather in Denver to 'March for Our Lives'

DENVER – Thousands of people of all ages demonstrated in support of gun control in Denver and around Colorado Saturday.

People packed into Civic Center Park near the state Capitol to listen to relatives of people killed in the 1999 Columbine High School shooting, including gun control advocate Tom Mauser, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Maddie King before spilling out onto the streets of downtown carrying signs like “The Second Amendment Needs Amending” and “Prayers are Not Enough”. The crowd included students, including a contingent from Columbine, parents pushing strollers and several hundred Montessori teachers and administrators holding their convention in Denver.

Demonstrations were also held in Fort Collins, Grand Junction, Basalt and Colorado Springs, where U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, delivered the closing remarks.
