Newtown group holds vigil for Las Vegas shooting victims

An advocacy group formed after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School has held a vigil for the Las Vegas mass shooting victims outside the National Shooting Sports Foundation in Connecticut.

The Newtown Action Alliance on Wednesday urged the community to call on lawmakers to take action on gun control.

The 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook in Newtown left six adults and 20 children dead.

The group previously held a vigil and rally outside the gun association's headquarters after the mass shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub.

Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 injured during the shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas Sunday. Several remain hospitalized.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation says that "thoughts and prayers" are with the victims of the Sunday shooting.
