Hundreds of concerned people attended a Town Hall for Our Lives in Atlanta to speak with elected politicians about gun reform.

Atlanta's town hall was one of the many being hosted across the county on Saturday. The meeting served as a forum for community dialogue to discuss ways to reduce gun violence.

Congressman John Lewis was one of the lawmakers there.

He says he will do his part to make a change in legislation.

"We have to stop the madness. We have to stop it," Rep. Lewis said. "And I'm going to do everything possible to get it done."

Lewis said that he thought the most important thing people could do is get everyone they know registered and "vote like you've never voted before."

Attendees say they feel this meeting is the beginning stages of a movement that can better lives in our community.
