Franklin Holds Prayer Vigil for Parkland Shooting Victims

A prayer vigil for victims of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, was held in downtown Franklin Monday night.

Franklin Community Church's pastor, Kevin Riggs, read the names of the 17 victims -- a candle was lit for each -- and led attendees in prayer.

“Unfortunately, this is happening way too often," Pastor Riggs told WKRN.  "Something happens and we’re called to pray. Prayer does change things. But when we pray, God calls us to take action, I think.”

Riggs is an advocate for what he calls common-sense gun reform.
