Heart of LA DEMOCRATIC CLUB STATEMENT ON THE LAS VEGAS SHOOTINGS
The Heart of LA Democratic Club grieves for the victims and with the families and friends of loved ones who were brutally murdered Sunday night in Las Vegas. We send strength to the injured, that they may recover quickly. We stand in awe with the brave concertgoers, ordinary citizens and first-responders who put their lives on the line to courageously help those in need.
Out of respect for the dead and injured, rather than abstain from politics, we double down on our commitment to supporting comprehensive gun violence prevention measures. We can only hope that this senseless tragedy reignites the debate in Congress and in State legislatures, who have not done enough to make our communities safer from gun violence. They must do more.
We will do more by holding our representatives accountable. We will do more by rooting out those rubber-stamp politicians backed by the NRA's poisonous, dark money. We will do more by saying loud and clear that enough is enough.
Please join us NOW by contacting your representatives and DEMAND ACTION today.
