State Representative Helen Giddings (Dallas) released the following statement on the tragedy in Las Vegas:
Dallas-"Early this morning, dozens of lives were lost and thousands were changed forever by the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. Words are not nearly enough, but we pray those affected by this senseless tragedy are able to heal from the unimaginable pain they are experiencing today
In times like these, our country must be a family. We must bring words of encouragement and shoulders to cry on. We must be good neighbors and caring colleagues. But more than that, we must demand change in our culture and in our laws. Until crimes like these are impossible to imagine, we must work exhaustively to bring change. The people of Las Vegas deserve our vigilance. Our nation deserves safety. The work must begin again"
