LGBT Community Mourns Victims Of Las Vegas Massacre

The doctors from Orlando Regional Medical Center were in Las Vegas two weeks before Sunday's deadly concert mass shooting. Moulton said he would no longer participate in moments of silence after the June 2016 shooting at the Pulse nightclub that killed 49 people and injured more than 50 which, until last weekend, was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S history. It has overtaken the Pulse nightclub shooting as the deadliest in modern US history. The assailant, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, who was firing from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, killed himself before police could apprehend him.

No Vegas. No. My heart simply can't take anymore. He knows Las Vegas doctors and nurses will understand that soon, too.

"I can feel it in all my wounds, it's like reliving that morning all over again", said survivor Tony Marrero. 'It just - it hurts a lot'.

'It's about surrounding each other with warmth and then, for the rest of this country, it's about doing something about [gun violence]'.

Wounded Knee (1890) - The Army opened fire on Chief Big foot of the Lakota tribe and his people, killing more than 150. Christopher Cuevas, executive director of QLatinx, says it's important for survivors and other people in Orlando to take care of themselves and process their emotions, which may be triggered by memories of the Pulse massacre. "I cried because I actually believed that this world could change for the better, and that hope was shattered".


Southern Nevada welcomed almost 43 million tourists last year, a record, and the city is on track to exceed that this year, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. "It is unimaginable that another mass shooting of even greater scope than that of Pulse nightclub could occur again in this country, but indeed, it has".

She also is demanding more work to stop such crimes.

"30,000 Americans die every year as a result of gun violence, because we have prioritized unfettered access to murder weapons over human lives".

Gays Against Guns, an advocacy group that formed in direct response to the Pulse nightclub shooting, said politicians aren't doing enough to prevent more shootings. The NRA wants us to be silent but we can not be silent any longer. They say the pattern of mass shootings must be answered with what Moulton refers to as "basic gun reform". This is a time when we must demand our government leaders take action, pass new gun laws & end this American domestic terrorism.
