Feinstein Statement on Las Vegas Shooting

Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas:

“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest ever. With more than 50 dead and more than 500 wounded—many seriously—it’s clear that families and friends of the victims will need our support and compassion.

“We must not allow ourselves to become numb to these massacres that can snuff out so many lives in such a short time. It should shock every American that one individual, with easy access to weapons and ammunition, can inflict such devastation.

“As we learn more in the days to come, we should all think deeply about the circumstances of this shooting and work together to prevent such tragedies from happening again.”
