This needs to stop.

A gunman aiming from an upper floor of a Las Vegas hotel unleashed a barrage of automatic gunfire on an outdoor concert festival across the street, killing more than 50 people and wounding at least 400 others on Sunday night, officials said.

Concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest Festival ran and ducked for cover as the gunman opened fire from the hotel, the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, shortly after 10 p.m, according to initial reports. Thousands of people fled the area.

Thankful to see my friends marked safe this morning, but at least 50 other families don’t wake up with the same news. We really need to end gun violence in this country.
