They joined up with more than 40 other people whose loved ones were killed by gun violence.

One of those people was Paul Wilson. His wife was killed last October when police say a man walked into a salon in California and started shooting. Seven others were also killed. Police say the shooter was in a custody dispute with one of the workers.
