Candlelight vigil held in Salt Lake City on eve of Sandy Hook shooting anniversary (VIDEO)
First Published Dec 13 2013 10:33 pm • Last Updated Dec 14 2013 01:06 pm

A small group of people gathered Friday — on the eve of the Sandy Hook shooting one-year anniversary — in the bitter cold and dirty air of downtown Salt Lake City to take a stand against gun violence.

The group, called Gun Sense, is a local organization that decries gun violence and advocates for greater firearm regulation. Friday’s event, a candle light vigil at the intersection of Main Street and South Temple, included a speech by a woman who lost her son in a shooting. Participants also read the names of the Sandy Hook victims.

Sven Haynes, one of the organizers, said the goal was to remind people of what happened at Sandy Hook.
