Colorado Students, Supporters Rallying For Gun Control

DENVER (AP) — Colorado students and their supporters are rallying for gun control at home in support of those demonstrating in Washington.

Thousands of people are expected to attend Denver's demonstration Saturday, which will start with a rally in Civic Center Park at 2 p.m.

Two relatives of people killed in the Columbine High School shooting, gun control advocate Tom Mauser and Coni Sanders, and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Maddie King will be among those talking to the crowd before they march through downtown.
