Langevin Statement on Las Vegas Mass Shooting

Oct 2, 2017

Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement regarding last night's mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada:

“The developing news out of Las Vegas is utterly shocking and horrifying. My heart aches for the victims of last night’s shooting, concertgoers who were enjoying a night of music before a shooter took their lives in a senseless act of violence. I am also immensely grateful for the first responders and medical professionals working to tend the hundreds of wounded.

“Now, more than ever, we must unite to combat the growing epidemic of violence in this country. As Las Vegas law enforcement continues their investigation, I pray for the victims and their families and that we as a society can join together to prevent future such attacks.”
