(KGTV) - A group held a rally outside of Rep. Darrell Issa’s Vista office Tuesday morning to request a town hall meeting on gun violence.

Members of the group Indivisible 49 gathered at the congressman’s office at 1800 Thibodo Road for the 10 a.m. rally.

Students from Carlsbad schools Sage Creek High School and Army and Navy Academy joined San Clemente High School students at the event.

Issa’s office did not immediately respond to the gathering.

Tuesday’s effort is part of the nationwide “Town Halls for Our Lives” movement, which was organized by some survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting.

So far, 79 members of Congress have committed to holding town hall meetings.
