CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (CBS12) — The shooting at the YouTube headquarters in California have caused such a shock wave, that its effects can be felt in South Florida.
Emotion poured through the microphone Tuesday night at a gun violence prevention town hall, where about 1,000 attendees at The Coral Springs Museum of Art voiced their concerns to our local leaders.
Seven weeks ago, just a few miles from the museum, 17 people lost their lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school in Parkland.
