Hundreds Crowd Capitol to Rally Against Gun Violence 23 Feb 18

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Hundreds of demonstrators in orange shirts and scarves filled the Capitol Rotunda on Thursday, waving signs critical of the National Rifle Association, chanting “Save our kids!” and urging lawmakers to act to prevent more mass shootings of children.

Speakers ranging from legislators to high school students called for expanded background checks and an assault weapons ban in the aftermath of the Florida school shooting that killed 17 students and teachers last week.
