Survivors, legislators address gun violence in schools (12 images)

Seven thousand pairs of shoes are placed on the Capitol lawn to memorialize the 7,000 children who have lost their lives to gun violence since the Sandy Hook school shootings. Survivors of the Parkland shooting, and Sens. Mario Rubio, R-Fla., and Orin Hatch, R-Utah, also had news conference to discuss the Stop School Violence Act outside the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. Photos by Kevin Dietsch/UPI

The silent protest is intended to spur lawmakers to take action on gun reforms. Organizers of the memorial said the Parkland shooting was the catalyst for creating the memorial. | License Photo
