Paul McCartney at NYC March For Our Lives: 'One Of My Best Friends Was Killed By Gun Violence'

Paul McCartney Remembers John Lennon During March For Our Lives

McCartney was sporting a shirt that read "We can end gun violence". Speaking to CNN he explained that having lost a good friend of his to gun violence, it was a very important issue to him.

The march, held in favor of gun control, was part of a web of rallies that took place across the country, including in Boston.

Not far from where John Lennon was shot in front of his apartment building at 72 St. and Central Park West on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the former Beatle marched in solidarity with the crowd.


Paul McCartney was one of many celebrities who attended the March For Our Lives rally on Saturday, March 24, but for some, his involvement was especially powerful.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students Emma Gonzalez, Alex Wind, David Hogg, Jaclyn Corin, and Cameron Kasky planned the March for Our Lives in Washington D.C. days after the February 14 mass shooting at the Parkland, Florida. "I invite you to give us your brain power".

Half a million people are estimated to be marching in Washington DC.


There were more than 800 marches across the USA and the world.

Hundreds of sister marches took place across the country and world.
