NEW YORK -- Hundreds of protesters have marched across the Brooklyn Bridge demanding stricter gun laws.

Saturday's third annual march across the bridge was organized by the group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Organizers said the proliferation of guns results in an average of more than 80 deaths a day across the country.

As they crossed the bridge, participants yelled "not one more!"

The march started in Brooklyn and ended with a rally outside City Hall in lower Manhattan.

Speakers included Abbey Clements, a teacher from the Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut where a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in 2012.
