Tuesday marks the 6-year anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre.

On this day in 2007, a student went on a shooting spree at the Blacksburg campus.

Family and friends of the victims held a moment of silence outside the capitol in Washington. They also read aloud the names of the victims.

This group is urging Congress to take action to pass tougher gun laws.
