by VVN Music

Paul McCartney is one of the participants in the March For Our Lives in New York.

While much of the focus from the media is on the Washington, DC march, there are similar events being held all over the U.S.

McCartney was dressed in a black shirt with "We Can End Gun Violence" across the front in white letters and mingled among the other marchers.

CNN talked briefly with Paul with the singer talking about his fellow Beatle John Lennon.  "One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it's important to me."

He also told the network that, while he wasn't sure that the marches would change much "This is what we can do, so I'm here to do it."

Lennon was killed on December 8, 1980 by Mark David Chapman as he and Yoko Ono were returning to their apartment in the Dakota Building.
