Paul McCartney remembers John Lennon at March for Our Lives

Beatle Paul McCartney tells the powerful story of how his 'best friend' John Lennon 'was killed by a gun'

Sir Paul McCartney has remembered his former Beatles bandmate John Lennon at a march against gun violence in the student-led March For Our Lives. "One of my best friends was killed by gun violence right around here, so it's important to me not just to march today but to take action tomorrow".

"One of my best friends was killed in gun violence right around here, so it's important to me", McCartney told CNN.

McCartney spoke with CNN's Jason Carroll and explained that the shooting death of John Lennon in 1980 was part of his motivation for marching.




Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono, has not spoken out on the Parkland shooting, but she did post a message of support for "the youth of America" via Instagram on March 7.

McCartney was one of thousands of people who attended marches against gun violence in all 50 states, Washington D.C., and countries around the world on Saturday to commemorate victims of gun violence and call for tougher gun control measures.

In total, over 800 March For Our Lives events took place over the weekend. "You can make a little less money and be able to look at yourself in the mirror with no blood on your hands", Schumer added.
