Thousands march for gun control in Washington

WASHINGTON — Thousands of people, many holding signs with names of gun violence victims and messages such as ‘‘Ban Assault Weapons Now,’’ joined a rally for gun control Saturday, marching from the Capitol to the Washington Monument.

Leading the crowd were marchers with ‘‘We Are Sandy Hook’’ signs, paying tribute to victims of the December school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Washington Mayor Vincent Gray and other city leader marched alongside. The crowd stretched for at least two blocks on Constitution Avenue.
