1 October 2017 saw the largest shooting tragedy in America’s violent gun massacre history. Fifty-eight people enjoying an outdoor event in Las Vegas were murdered and hundreds injured.
Obtaining an arsenal of weapons and ammunition, transporting it, and bringing it into a hotel posed no obstacles. This has to change.
Two short, easy actions this time – do one or do both. We will send messages of condolence to the city of Las Vegas for one, and for the other, we will call the NRA to task.
On this anniversary the NRA twitter feed has not a single word about Las Vegas – no condolences, not a mention of any kind.
They are, however, audaciously, cruelly, tweeting against laws that could control the sale of ammunition:
How it must feel to have been one of the injured, or a friend or loved one of the deceased and see such a tweet on a day like today.

It’s the 2nd anniversary of the Las Vegas massacre but not a word of condolence from the @NRA for victims, loved ones. Instead the tone-deaf NRA tweets against ammunition control. Time to acknowledge the role the NRA and its Russian backers played in this tragedy. #RussianAsset
