In Photos: Thousands rally against gun violence in March for Our Lives

Thousands of protesters from across the country marched through Washington, D.C. on saturday for the second March for Our Lives. 

The march comes in the wake of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, 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.
