Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) today released the following statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas:

“The right-wing – and NRA – messaging point that nothing could have been done to prevent the horrific attack in Las Vegas is just wrong. Over two years ago, I released a comprehensive plan to deal with gun violence like the public health epidemic that it is. The solutions shouldn’t be hard – but sadly, none of the proposals I’ve laid out have even been considered by Congress.

“From Orlando to Roseburg, OR and now Las Vegas, the carnage has only continued. ‘Thoughts and prayers’ will not stop future tragedy. Enough is enough. My hope is that sanity will prevail, and Republican leadership in Congress will muster up the courage to act.”
