JANUARY 26, 2013: U.S. Timothy Hewlin from the District holds a sign while gathering with fellow gun law supporters at the U.S. Capitol Reflecting Pool before walking in silence along Constitution Avenue to the Washington Monument. Hewlin's son Demetrius Hewlin was shot and killed at Chardon High School in Ohio last year. He was only 16 years old. The event, which is named March on Washington for Gun Control, unites concerned parents, pastors, actors, gun-violence survivors, law enforcement officers, elected officials and others who all seek common-sense protections against senseless gun violence. The demonstrators are joined by Newtown residents, the District of Columbia's Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Mayor Vincent Gray, and Councilmembers David Grosso, Kenyan McDuffie and Tommy Wells who lead the March carrying a banner that reads 'When we stand together, we stand a chance.'(Photo by ASTRID RIECKEN For The Washington Post via Getty Images)
