Senators reacted on Twitter were grief, shock, and – in some cases – calls for gun control after a lone gunman shot into a crowd of concertgoers at a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip on Oct. 1.
Senseless, horrifying act of violence in Las Vegas tonight. Praying for all the victims & those impacted by the tragedy.

Tragedies like Las Vegas have happened too many times. We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.
