Paul McCartney Marched For John Lennon In NYC's 'March For Our Lives'

By Collin Gossel

On March 24, inspired by the main March For Our Lives in Washington D.C. (organized by survivors of the Parkland, Florida, shooting), sister protests were organized around the country to call for stricter gun control laws and an end to gun violence in the United States. The New York March For Our Lives had a notable member in its ranks - former Beatle Paul McCartney. McCartney had a touching reason why the march mattered so much to him:

John Lennon, another former Beatle and close friend of Paul's, was killed by gun violence just a few blocks away from the march on December 8, 1980.
