WISCONSIN (CBS 58) — For some, Valentine’s Day is a reminder of the lives that were lost due to senseless gun violence.
Feb. 14 marks 15 years since the mass shooting at Northern Illinois University, where five people were killed and 17 others were hurt. In addition, five years ago on Tuesday, 14 students and three staff members were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
Most recently, a gunman killed three students and wounded five others at Michigan State University on Monday night before leading authorities on a manhunt, which ended after he fatally shot himself.
Karly Scholz is originally from Madison, Wisconsin, and she said she became an activist against gun violence following the Parkland shooting.
