Marchers in Nation’s Capital Demand Tougher Gun Laws

WASHINGTON D.C. (CNN) — Thousands marched on the nation’s capital Saturday — in a rally that found its beginnings on Facebook — demanding tougher gun control laws from Washington.

Demonstrators are calling for a federal ban on assault-style rifles and high capacity magazines.

They are also asking Congress to require universal background checks for gun sales.

Earlier this week, California Senator Diane Feinstein introduced a bill that would ban some assault weapons.

This weekend’s march marks the first major demonstration in Washington since the school shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.

    I rather see marchers on Washington with signs that read, "Better Health Care for the Mentally Ill and All Americans"

    I think California should roll back their gun laws, Now! Besides we don't have the money to enforce the laws that we have on the books now, why do we need more.
