TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) -A candlelight vigil to remember and honor the victims of gun violence took place on Wednesday night in midtown.

Families of victims gathered with the Newtown Foundation and Faiths United for a nationwide remembrance to end gun violence.  

It has been almost three years since the Sandy Hook tragedy where 20 children and six adults were murdered.

One mother whose daughter was a victim of gun violence in Tucson says there needs to be a better solution and suggests gun control.

"We need to have civil discourse, not screaming and yelling. We need to get together and figure out how we are going to make change," said Carol Gaxiola. 

Since 2012, a total of 90,000 Americans have fallen victim to gun violence.
