Paul McCartney Speaks On John Lennon At March For Our Lives

Paul McCartney shared some memories of his legendary Beatles bandmate John Lennon during an appearance at the New York City gathering of the March for Our Lives rally. The famed Mop Top took the stage at the gathering and also spoke with media reminding fans that Lennon was a victim of gun violence. “One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here so it’s important to me,” McCartney told CNN’s Jason Carroll while wearing a “We can end gun violence” T-shirt. “I don’t know [if we can end gun violence]. But this is what we can do, so I’m here to do it.” The march garnered the attendance of many celebrities in the over 800 gatherings worldwide: “March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar,” reads the event’s mission statement, in part. “In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.” Copyright(c) 2018 All Rights ReservedLess «
