They came by the hundreds and thousands to Atlanta; Boston; Jacksonville, Florida; and New York: from babes in arms or strollers to seniors using canes or wheelchairs.

Photographers and videographers documented what happened as all these people gathered to demand gun control Saturday, galvanized by the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 and wounded 17 more.
