Women’s March Protests at NRA Ahead of 17-Mile Trek to DOJ


In the sweltering heat, hundreds gathered in front of the National Rifle Association on Friday to tell the gun lobby “no more”.

“I’m here to say to you to those across the street, ‘we’re not trying to take your guns away’. We’re saying, ‘don’t use them against people who are standing up even for your life,’” Tamika Mallory, co-president of the Women’s March said.

Mallory, Linda Sarsour, and other organizers of the Women’s March rallied in front of the NRA before starting a 17-mile march to the Department of Justice. The march comes after officer Jeronimo Yanez was acquitted of manslaughter charges in the shooting death of Philando Castile.
