    People across the country gathered in honor of the National Day of Awareness Against Gun Violence

    (NECN) - People across the country took to the streets to take part in the National Day of Awareness Against Gun Violence. In Boston, a few dozen people rallied at the State House to promote stricter gun laws.
    Among those in the crowd was Sarah Flint, a woman who lost her nephew and son to homicide. "My son has been dead 31 years. I will never get over that," said Flint.

    State Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz was also at the event.

    "We have to remember these are not just a few incidents in an isolated way around our country, but that this is going on every day in our communities," said Chang-Diaz. "What we are asking for in these laws is not radical stuff. These are common sense, practical solutions."

    Organizers are also calling for expanded gun background checks.
