Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas, NV:

“Our nation woke up this morning to tragedy on an unimaginable scale. These are times when we turn to God trying to understand how such inhuman acts can happen. Our nation prays for those who died and for those still fighting to live. Las Vegas is a place that people from around the country and the world go to visit. Communities across America will feel the pain of this violence personally—including my home town of Bakersfield, as several off-duty police officers attended the concert, one of whom was wounded. We are so thankful for the bravery of the first responders and average citizens who put themselves in danger to care for and protect others. May God bless us all as we mourn and search for healing.”
