(PIX11) – A somber anniversary being marked is being marked in Aurora, Colorado.

It has been exactly one year since James Holmes opened fire inside a crowded movie theater.

Friday, a rally was held calling for more gun control.

The names of gun violence victims were read aloud.

The event, sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns and co-chaired by New York Mayor Bloomberg, calls on elected officials to act — not just talk — about ending gun violence.

Gun rights supporters held a counter rally nearby, saying they respect the victims and families but see the solution differently.

Speakers continued to read names through the night, stopping at 12:38 Saturday morning, the moment Holmes opened fire inside the theater.
