Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the below statement following Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada:
"Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas was a devastating act of domestic terrorism. As investigations continue into the gunman's motives, we should restart a national conversation about gun violence that does not devolve into partisanship and demagoguery. Although we cannot prevent all evil acts, we can do our part to make them less likely-beginning with meaningful action from Congress to keep the wrong weapons out of the wrong hands. A reasonable first step should be a commonsense universal background check system that already has bipartisan support in the Senate. There is nothing more important than keeping our families and communities safe."
