A crowd gathered for a vigil to mourn those who lost their lives in the Parkland, Fla. shooting broke into chants of “no more guns” Thursday night.
The crowd of people, many of them holding candles, repeated “No more guns,” reports the Hill. Thousands of people were reportedly there to honor the 17 people who lost their lives during Wednesday’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz also spoke at the vigil, telling those gathered that she and others would help make sure communities began electing officials who would work to prevent shootings like this from happening again.
“We must hold other people’s elected officials accountable. We must make sure that they hear us,” she said. “We will help lead you to help other communities elect people who will do the right thing, who will make sure no one’s families ever have to go through this again.”
Authorities arrested 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz for the premeditated murder of 17 individuals. Cruz reportedly opened fire at the Parkland high school and wounded at least 14 other people.
