Two Republican senators, Marco Rubio of Florida and Joni Ernst of Iowa, said over the weekend that while they supported gun control advocates' right to protest, they opposed infringing on the constitutional right to bear arms.

Here in Tucson the march started in downtown and then was led to the University of Arizona mall, where many students took the stage to take a stand. Not all gun owners present at the event agreed with the view that restricting gun access is the best way to make schools safer.
