The mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas late Sunday night — now the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history — doesn’t just have Hollywood in mourning for the 58 people who lost their lives and praying for the more than 400 injured; it has them rallying for some action when it comes to gun control policy reform.
“Oh no! How can this be happening? I am praying for the families and friends of those who were shot,” Sheryl Crow wrote on Twitter. “Can we discuss the loss of rights of people going to a concert because of the lack of assault rifle regulations?”
“50+ souls. Hundreds injured. 1 terroristic psychotic with an absurdly powerful weapon. Pure madness. Get these weapons off the streets!!!” Jeffrey Wright wrote.
Elizabeth Banks asked, “At what point do we Americans say #enough?”
Singer Ryan Adams called out the NRA directing, writing, “How many innocent people & animals have to die before you admit to helping murderers? WE ARE YOUR KIDS.”
How to Help and Learn About Loved Ones
Friends and family are asked to report missing people believed to be connected to the shooting using the hotline 1-800-536-9488.
Anyone with photo or video evidence of the shooting is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI.
The city of Las Vegas has established a Family Reunification Center to help connect relatives with the more than 500 people who were injured.
In addition, city officials urged those locally who wish to donate blood to visit one of two donation centers operated by United Blood Services, either at 6930 W. Charleston in Las Vegas or at 601 Whitney Ranch Drive in Henderson, Nevada.
A victims’ fund has been started on GoFundMe by Steve Sisolak the Clark County, Nevada, commission chair. Other groups providing relief include the local chapter of the American Red Cross and the National Compassion Fund.
