Organizers hold rally in Annapolis to end gun violence

ANNAPOLIS, MD -- WBFF -- Two high profile victims of gun violence rallied in Annapolis Saturday urging lawmakers to do more to prevent mass shootings.

Maryland already has some of the toughest gun control laws in the country but in Annapolis Saturday, they urged lawmakers to do more.

Students from Great Mills High organized the rally. In March, Jaelynn Willey was gunned down at the school, while another student, Desmond Barnes, was shot in the leg.

Also at Saturday's rally, was a reporter at the Capital Gazette who hid under her desk when a gunman opened fire last month.

Students met directly with Governor Hogan last week. They also met with Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Ben Jealous before the rally.
