Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attended the march with their 4-year-old daughter, North, landing in Washington D.C. early Saturday morning to stand with the thousands of people protesting gun violence and mass shootings. March for Our Lives was organized after the Feb. 14 massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 people.
"So ready to March today! Landed in DC w North & Kanye. We stand in solidarity with the survivors of gun violence & students who are calling for action on common sense gun safety laws at #MarchForOurLives around the country," Kardashian tweeted before heading to the streets. "@AMarch4OurLives @Everytown."

The reality star, who Snapchatted from the protest, later shared a sweet pic of her husband and daughter, writing, "I’m so happy I got to share this moment with these two ❤️❤️ . I hope North remembers this forever."
While Kardashian headed to march in Washington, D.C., her famous family sent their support over social media. "Today we stand with the survivors of gun violence and student activists who are calling for action on common sense gun safety laws at #MarchForOurLives around the country!" Kourtney wrote. "This is the beginning of a safer future. #MarchForOurLives @AMarch4OurLives #NeverAgain."
Kardashian has spoken out about gun control on several occasions over the last few years. After surviving an armed robbery in 2016, the mother of three wrote a piece about gun violence on her blog, saying that she's not against "people buying guns," she just wants stricter gun legislation.

"After what happened to me in Paris, I know how important it is to be safe and to have armed security," she explained. "All of my security team is armed, but they also support stricter gun control laws and believe that we should restrict access to firearms for people with mental illness, anyone previously convicted of a misdemeanor, those who have been subject to a temporary restraining order and those at a higher risk of committing gun violence."
"I hope that we won't become numbed by the increasing number of gun-related tragedies we see on the news," she wrote. "We all have a voice and a right to feel safe, to be protected from people who are a threat, particularly when handed a deadly weapon. I want to help build a safer future for my children and I believe together we can find ways to do that, while still protecting the rights of the American people."
