Gun Control Rally Fails to Draw Large Crowd

A crowd in the hundreds gathers for the Million Moms March on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. The turnout was far smaller than the tens of thousands who showed up for the first Million Moms March, four years ago. Organizers downplayed the small size of the crowd -- but they acknowledged these are tough times for gun control. NPR's Libby Lewis reports.
