National LGBTQ Task Force Statement on Mass Shooting in Las Vegas

Washington, DC, October, 2: 2017: We are deeply shocked and saddened by last night’s mass murder in Las Vegas. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families, first responders and everyone impacted by the tragedy.

It was just over one year ago that a gunman murdered 49 people, and injured many more, at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida in June 2016. We had hoped that no community would ever have to face that kind of tragedy again.
The National LGBTQ Task Force is actively working to prevent gun violence. This type of tragedy can, and must be, avoided,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
