It all went down at the Tampa Bay Sporting Clays in Land O'Lakes.

The activists are trying to get their message of gun violence across, calling their protest a vigil and die-in, to mourn the loss of lives to gun violence in the U.S., including Trayvon Martin and the people who died in the Aurora movie theater shooting.
