New Mexico – The Democratic Party of New Mexico released the following statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada:
“This tragic loss of life reminds us all that life is precious, and we must value our time with our loved ones. Our hearts are with the Nevada community and we mourn for the victims’ families of this mass shooting. We are especially grateful for the first responders and law enforcement officers who put themselves in harm’s way to save the lives of our fellow Americans.
“During times of tragedy, Americans do what we do best: we come together, we help our neighbors, and we show that we treasure our similarities more than our differences. But we must also protect our communities from future events like this, and we call on our leaders to find solutions to prevent a tragedy like this from ever happening again.”
