Massachusetts Officials Express Sadness Over Vegas Shooting 

BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts officials are expressing sadness and condolences over the shooting in Las Vegas that killed at least 58 people and injured hundreds more.

Gov. Charlie Baker says he spoke with fellow Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval of Nevada on Monday and offered any help his state could provide.

While saying the investigation should take its course, Baker added that he takes “some comfort” in knowing Massachusetts has some of the nation’s toughest gun laws, including an assault weapons ban.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted that such tragedies have happened too many times, and said we need to have a conversation now about how to stop gun violence.

Democratic Congressman Seth Moulton said on Twitter he will not join colleagues in a moment of silence on the House floor, because that “becomes an excuse for inaction.”
