Massachusetts Democrat Just Made an Announcement That Quickly Turned Vegas Attack Political

Share

Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Seth Moulton announced he won’t partake in the moment of silence on the House floor for the victims of the mass shooting in Las Vegas Monday, arguing Congress should instead be taking action on gun control.

A gunman killed at least 50 people and injured more than 400 after open firing at a country music festival Sunday evening. Moulton took to social media to call for lawmakers to act on gun control legislation.

The Massachusetts Democrat noted, following the mass shooting in Orlando, he and his colleagues said it likely wouldn’t be the last instance of violence.

“As after #Orlando, I will NOT be joining my colleagues in a moment of silence on the House Floor that just becomes an excuse for inaction,” he tweeted. “Now is not a moment for silence; it’s a time for action.”

Moulton is one of the several Democratic lawmakers to call for legislative action to be taken.

Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle expressed their condolences to the victims and their families. House Speaker Paul Ryan called for the flags to be lowered to half-mast Monday morning.
