Today, as thousands of students around the country were walking out of their schools in support of gun control, I was standing outside the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, with a crowd of hundreds of protestors. Gun control is a cause I hold close to my heart, and I’m grateful for all the outspoken people who are working toward this important goal, especially the young people who walked out and spoke up today.

Here are my photos from the scene this morning.
