Walk to End Gun Violence

Calls for ‘common-sense’ laws

A march is planned for Saturday, March 24, at 11 a.m. at Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie to show support for “common-sense” gun controls. Students from Parkland, Florida, where a gunman on Feb. 14 killed 17 people at a high school, organized the national event, which is sponsored locally by dozens of groups.
