Community activists rally against gun violence

THE BRONX - Community activists are rallying against gun violence following the fatal shootings of two teens over the weekend.

Less than 12 hours after a Mothers Against Gun Violence rally was held Saturday, 15-year-old Marvin Wiggins and 16-year-old Quanisha Wright were slain in gun-related violence.

Gloria Cruz, who organized the rally, said "We are killing each other and all of these minority men and women are killing themselves ... and we need to stop the nonsense."
