ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Virginians marked the 10th anniversary of the Virginia Tech shooting earlier this year. In light of Sunday's shooting in Las Vegas, families spoke out Monday night at a vigil in Alexandria.

The news of the shooting rendered emotions all too familiar to Virginia Tech. At the time, the April 16, 2007 that killed 32 was the worst mass shooting, but Orlando and now Vegas have surpassed it with at least 59 dead and hundreds more injured.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, a gun control group, organized the vigil for the victims and set the stage for an increased push for gun reform.
