Gays Against Guns Demonstration on Monday, October 2, 2017 - one day after the bloody massacre at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas - was covered by AM New York's website.

In their article, "Las Vegas shooting prompts gun control rally in Manhattan". Lauren Cook and Ivan Pereira wrote:

"Holding signs that read, 'Keep NYC gun free' and 'Justice,' more than 100 New Yorkers rallied in support of tighter gun control laws Monday evening, less than 24 hours after a mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas claimed the lives of at least 59 people. 'One of the biggest massacres took place because the National Rifle Association allowed it,' rally organizer Kevin Hertzog told the crowd as they stood near the iconic red staircase in Times Square."
