BOSTON — Massachusetts officials are expressing sadness and condolences over the shooting in Las Vegas that killed more than 50 people.
Gov. Charlie Baker says he spoke with fellow Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada on Monday to offer law enforcement officers or other help. He wrote on Twitter that Massachusetts is praying for victims, families and first responders.
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted that she is heartsick for the people of Nevada. She says such tragedies have happened too many times, and says we need to have a conversation now about how to stop gun violence.
Democratic Congressman Seth Moulton tweeted that he will not join colleagues in a moment of silence on the House floor. He says that “becomes an excuse for inaction” and now is “a time for action.”
