A group of 26 bicyclists are on the way from Newtown, Conn., to the U.S. Capitol to protest gun laws in America. The group is called Team 26. They first made the journey of about 400 miles on their bicycles in 2013, the year after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

High school students in Newtown, Conn., walked out of class Wednesday morning, like students across the country. And last night some students rallied outside the headquarters of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun lobbying group that’s a few miles away from Sandy Hook Elementary School.
