Paul McCartney was one of the attendees at the NYC March for Our Lives rally for gun control this past weekend.
The former Beatle was interviewed by a reporter at the event, not very far from the Dakota building, where his old band mate John Lennon lived and also where he was shot to death in 1980.
This march was very personal for Paul. He shares, "One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it's important to me".
Sir Paul wore a t-shirt with the words "We Can End Gun Violence" written on it.
When he was asked whether he thinks the protest could influence the federal government to enact gun-control legislation, he answered, "I'm like everyone, I don't know, but taking part in the march is what I can do, so I'm here to do it."
The march in New York was only one of about 800 events that took place around the world calling for gun control.
