Gun-control rally and march draws Newtown residents to National Mall
Quote:Thousands of marchers are expected on the National Mall Saturday to rally for new gun-control measures, including residents from Newtown, Connecticut.
Organizers of the gun-control march said they expect 100 residents from Newtown, where 20 children were killed in the December massacre, and thousands of others from around the country, according to the Associated Press.

Organizers say they want Congress to pass new gun-control laws in the wake of the Newtown massacre, including renewing the assault-weapons ban, banning high-capacity ammunition magazines and instituting mandatory background checks, all measures backed by President Obama.
The organizers also are calling for a 28-day waiting period, mandatory gun-safety training, and a ban on bullets that shatter in the body.
