Missoula to Honor Victims of Newtown Shooting

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The Missoula community is invited to remember and honor those lost one year ago, in a school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

On December 14, 2012, twenty children and six adults were gunned down inside Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Members of the group "Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America" said there are 33 gun-related deaths in the U.S. every day.

At a public vigil on Saturday, members of the group said they'll urge national gun reform.

"The problem of gun violence is every American's problem, and not something that just happens in you know, big cities, or you know, 2,000 miles away in a very random event-- it happens every single day," said Nancy de Pastino, of Moms Demand Action.

Moms Demand Action spent this week calling members of Congress to enact common-sense reforms, like comprehensive background checks for gun purchases.

The event takes place on Saturday at Union Hall on Main St. at 10 a.m.
