Thousands gathered in Greenwich Village in New York City Monday evening to call for action on behalf of the Orlando victims.
At the rally New York Governor Andrew Cuomo demanded sensible gun control and accused the federal government of doing nothing in the face of mass shooting after mass shooting.
“The frustration at a society that would allow a madman to buy an assault weapon has gone on for too long,” Cuomo said. “We went through it at Sandy Hook. How many people have to die before this federal government comes to its senses?” he said.
Cuomo called on the crowd to respond not with a desire for retribution, but with a promise to fight as a force for good.
