Strong celebrity support for today's marches demanding gun control

The nationwide March for Our Lives movement steps off in cities throughout the country today. The young activists organizing the events have strong celebrity backing.

"Time for gun laws to change," posted Marvel star Chris Evans, appearing as Captain America next in Atlanta-filmed "Avengers: Infinity War" next month.

"We stand in solidarity with the survivors of gun violence and student activists who are calling for action on common sense gun safety laws," reality star Khloe Kardashian posted.

Alyssa Milano, who campaigned for Jon Ossoff during his unsuccessful bid to fill former U.S. Rep. Tom Price's sea t, has posted several items, including a link giving information on local marches.
