In face of Las Vegas shooting, congressional inaction

In face of Las Vegas shooting, congressional inaction

"I know this feeling of heartbreak and horror too well", Giffords added.

"Awful, bad scene in Las Vegas", Flake said in a tweet Monday morning.

Giffords - who still struggles to speak as a result of the 2011 shooting that killed six and left her and 12 others wounded - had few words to say at the Capitol event.

The former astronaut charged that Congress has done "absolutely nothing" to stop further acts of gun violence and instead is working to craft legislation to "weaken our gun laws". "There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference".

Kelly also responded to criticism that gun control advocates politicize mass shootings.

Marilyn Manson injured in freak stage accident
After the stage crew lifted the prop upright, Manson continued to lay on the ground for a few minutes until EMT workers arrived. We hope Manson is okay and fully healed up soon! He's now promoting his new album of the same name, which is due out October 6.

Giffords, whose ability to speak has been limited since the shooting, told her former colleagues, "The nation's counting on you".

Citing President Donald Trump, Kelly said "Americans need more than our president's prayers". The content of the ads was not immediately clear, but the gun rights organization is also backing Republicans in the races for attorney general and lieutenant governor.

Gillespie, meanwhile, has the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and has an "A" rating from the group.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said she was "heartsick" for the victims, but said "thoughts and prayers" are not enough while calling for a dialogue on gun violence.

"We need a president that recognizes we have a gun violence problem and will work toward solutions", he said. "Only action and leadership will do that". My heart is with the city of Las Vegas and all who were touched by this tragedy. "None of this ends unless we do something to stop it".

Right-wing websites ID Las Vegas shooter as Geary Danley, the wrong guy
A far-right blog blamed an innocent man for the Las Vegas shooting based on shaky evidence, in a post that has since been removed. Furthermore, this White House-credentialed website also implied that the mass murderer was a Democrat and was anti-Trump.

Rep. Steve Scalise, who just returned to the House last week after being shot during a baseball practice at a Virginia park in June, said he and his wife are praying for the victims.

The mayor of Orlando, Fla., which had been the site of the country's deadliest mass shooting before the Las Vegas rampage, reached out on Twitter to offer his condolences.

Videos of the initial gunfire in Las Vegas appeared to indicate the use of a fully automatic, machine-gun-type weapon.

"In this tragic moment, I encourage people across America to stand together in solidarity, and to support the Las Vegas community and all of those affected, especially by giving blood and encouraging others to do the same", he said.
