A diverse group of individuals and organizations gathered outside National Rifle Association (NRA) headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia, on June 20, 2016, for an overnight vigil honoring the victims of the shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando and a morning "die-in" civil disobedience action to protest the NRA's relentless lobbying to put weapons of war into our homes, streets and communities. More than 100 took part in the vigil and 16 were arrested in the morning action.
