Cicilline Statement on Mass Shooting in Las Vegas

Monday, October 2, 2017

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI), who serves as Vice Chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, issued the following statement today:

“Last night, a gunman opened fire on the Las Vegas Strip. The victims were innocent Americans attending a country music festival. 50 are dead. More than 400 were taken to area hospitals. I am keeping them in my thoughts and prayers today.”

“This was the worst mass shooting in American history. And every day, in cities and towns across America, this epidemic of gun violence is ending lives and destroying families. It has to stop. And Congress has the responsibility to act.”

“To my Republican colleagues who control the House – please join us to and show the American people we are united in the face of this crisis. Let’s come together and end this violence.”
