Remembering Orlando Shooting, Fla. Officials Express Condolences To Las Vegas Victims

Las Vegas shooting

The attack on a country music concert taking place on the Las Vegas strip overtakes last year's mass shooting at gay nightclub in Orlando as the nation's deadliest.

Rep. Katherine Clark (D-MA 5th District) and Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA 6th District) figuratively stuck to their guns Tuesday night, staying true to the promise they made in June 2016 after the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting left 49 killed and 58 injured.

In 1873, in a mass shooting in Colfax, La., at least 60 and perhaps as many as 150 people were killed in what has become known as the Colfax massacre or Colfax riot. Initially, reports gave the death toll as 59 people, though Las Vegas officials later clarified that the number included the shooter, Stephen Paddock, who reportedly killed himself before police reached him.

Wounded Knee (1890) - The Army opened fire on Chief Big foot of the Lakota tribe and his people, killing more than 150.

As police continue to investigate the motive behind Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, it's too early to assess the exact impact on the city's thriving tourism industry. We were deeply touched by the heartfelt outpouring of support from Las Vegas following the Pulse nightclub tragedy.

'We are afflicted with hatred and violence. We must be there to hold them up. With more than 400 at Las Vegas hospitals, the need will be even greater.

Adrian Lopez lost eight friends at Pulse. But they came to his room, and the rooms of other victims, to help, to talk. I just have to live through it. 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. Instead, they got dressed in their survivor T-shirts and hats and gathered in front of Pulse to show support for the Las Vegas survivors. He'll give them time to recover from the chaos, then visit, he said.

One person who was in the concert's VIP section, Mark Lacy, told NPR's Rob Siegel that for about the first two hours medical personnel and ambulances had to set up some distance away because the area had not been declared safe for them to enter.

These Pulse survivors plan to get professional guidance on how to relate with victims and their families.
