NEW YORK - Hundreds of people have marched across a New York City bridge to demand stricter gun laws.

Saturday's fourth annual march across the Brooklyn Bridge was organized by the group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. The march started at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn and went to City Hall in lower Manhattan.

Participants carried signs and photos of loved ones killed by gun violence. They yelled, "What do we want? Gun sense!"

Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore was among the crowd. She has been pushing for universal background checks for all gun purchases.

Other speakers included the mother of broadcast journalist Alison Parker, who was killed on live television by a disgruntled former reporter. Parker died alongside video journalist Adam Ward while working for Roanoke, Virginia, TV station WDBJ.
