Las Vegas Shooting Was the Deadliest Shooting in Modern U.S. History; Everytown Research (And Visuals) on Gun Violence by the Numbers Available Here

WASHINGTON – Today, twelve members of the Everytown Survivor Network, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, who are families of victims or survived the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas strip applauded the Grammy Awards for planning to honor victims and survivors of gun violence during Sunday’s program.

“As survivors of the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas, we applaud the Recording Academy for using its national platform to honor the lives of gun violence victims and survivors at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. Americans should be able go about their lives free from the fear of gun violence, whether at school, a shopping mall or a concert. But, it’s not just cultural leaders who must speak out about gun violence – our nation’s elected leaders must speak out and take action to help save lives. Inaction is not a solution.”
