FAIRFIELD, Conn. — About 100 people gathered in Fairfield Wednesday night to honor the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

Organized by CT Against Gun Violence, the vigil began at 7:30 p.m. outside the organization’s Old Post Road office.

Fifty-eight were killed and nearly 500 injured in the massacre, the deadliest in modern U.S. history.

“Right now Congress is considering two bills that will make us less safe from gun violence, when what they should be doing is passing legislation to make us safer,” read an invitation to the vigil from Executive Director Ron Pinciaro. “It’s time for citizens around the country to tell Congress #Enough.”
