Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Northlanders hoping to end gun violence held a march in Duluth Sunday afternoon.

The march was put on by The Northland Chapter of Protect Minnesota.

They say they're disappointed that recent gun legislation wasn't passed and wanted to show just how many people support stricter gun background checks.

"We know we represent the majority and it's just affirming that all these people came out on this beautiful day to let our legislators and our lawmakers know we want them to do something," said Joan Peterson of the Northland Chapter of the Brady Campaign and Protect Minnesota.

The group says they plan to hold additional events in the Northland in the future.
