Gun Control Activists Target NRA Headquarters



Groups involved in the March for Our Lives mobilized for actions against the National Rifle Association. The main March on the NRA took place outside NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia.

There were smaller marches in cities around the country as well calling for gun control. Many activists marked what would have been the 18th birthday of a young man named Joaquin Oliver killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. His parents Manuel and Patricia Oliver said, "We don't want thoughts. We don't want prayers. We want change."

GUEST: Manuel Oliver, father, activist, artist and founder of Change the Ref, a group whose mission is, “To raise awareness about mass shootings through strategic interventions that will reduce the influence of the NRA on the Federal level."
