Paul McCartney Invokes John Lennon at March for Our Lives

24 March 2018

Paul spoke with CNN at the March on Saturday and commented on why we need to end gun violence while also pointing out that his Beatles bandmate was killed by gun violence not too far from where he was standing. The former Beatle had a very personal reason for joining the march.

McCartney was referring to John Lennon, who was shot to death in the archway of his residence in 1980. "It is important to me".

McCartney was referring, of course, to John Lennon, who was murdered by a gunman on December 8, 1980 outside the Dakota apartment building on New York's Upper West Side, blocks from where anti-gun-violence protesters were gathering today to begin their march downtown.

In 1980, Lennon was shot by gunman Mark David Chapman outside New York's Dakota apartment building, where the singer lived at the time with his wife, Yoko Ono.

After the fourth Nor'Easter in recent weeks, New Yorkers took advantage of Saturday's attractive weather to march in solidarity.

The demonstrations drew thousands of people for marches across the country.

Today's march will bring together hundreds of thousands of people across the USA and internationally to protest the lack of stricter gun control laws following the high number of mass shooting across the United States, most notably the recent Parkland school shooting where 17 people were killed.
