Gun control activists line up 7,000 pairs of kids’ shoes in chilling Capitol Hill display

Gun control activists line up 7,000 pairs of kids’ shoes in chilling Capitol Hill display

The shoes were put on display in honor and memory of every child who has reportedly died from gun violence since 2012’s Sandy Hook Elementary School mass killing.

The group’s Twitter account shared additional information on the display: “Tuesday March 13, from 8:30am, near the US Capitol: Shoes Memorial to 7,000 kids killed by guns in the US since the Sandy Hook school massacre.”

“About five families came that were victims of gun violence,” Soria said, according to the network.

Tom Mauser, the father of a 1999 Columbine, Colorado, shooting victim who visited the display, attended the event and reportedly wore the shoes his son was wearing the day he was killed.

“I’ll be traveling to D.C. literally wearing my son Daniel’s shoes, the ones he wore the day he died at Columbine,” Mauser said.
