Rock World Reacts To Mass Shooting at Las Vegas Country Music Festival
The world is waking up to the tragic news that at least 50 people have been killed and more than 400 are injured after a gunman opened fire on a country music festival crowd. A number of musicians from the rock and metal world have taken to social media to offer their sympathies to those harmed by this senseless act.
A 64-year-old gunman named Stephen Paddock, who is now dead himself, fired rounds onto the concert crowd using multiple weapons from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel. The bullets hailed upon the large crowd watching musician Jason Aldean perform.

Our ❤️ goes out to Vegas. For those who say there are no words, here’s a suggestion: #CommonSenseGunControl now. More guns wouldn’t help last night. Banning military-grade weapons for civilians is a step in the right direction. Politicizing tragedies creates dialogue #enough
