Hundreds of protesters rallied outside the headquarters of the National Rifle Association in Virginia Friday and then marched 18 miles to the Justice Department to protest against the NRA. The march was led by the organizers of the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., after Trump’s inauguration. This is Sarah Dachos of the group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Sarah Dachos: “As a mother, I have a son, and I would like him to grow up in a world where he feels safe walking down the street to go to the playground, that when he goes to school, he doesn’t have to do lockdown drills because we now live in a climate where somebody who is not safe with a gun has access to guns and could go into a school and shoot children.”
