Hundreds of rallies were planned today across the country to push for gun safety laws.

Thousands of protesters from across the country are marching through Washington, D.C. today for the second March For Our Lives.

The march comes in the wake of the mass shooting in Uvalde, TX last month that killed 19 children and 2 teachers. Demonstrators are calling on lawmakers to pass stricter gun safety legislation.

Here are some scenes from the protest.
