Donate to the Families
Clark County Commission Chair for Las Vegas Steve Sisolak and Sheriff Joseph Lombardo set up a GoFundMe campaign for the victims of the shooting. The funds will be used to provide relief and financial support to the victims and their families.
The Sheriff and I have set up an account to aid survivors and their families. I’ve pledged the first $10K. https://t.co/UMcQtZLgmr

Donations to the National Compassion Fund provide support to victims of tragedies like this one.
You can also give to local organizations that provide mental and physical health care to those who can’t afford them, like the Volunteers in Medicine of Southern Nevada.
Call Your Representatives
There’s a bill in congress, the Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act,” or SHARE Act, that would make it easier to buy gun silencers. In accounts of the attack last night and other mass shootings, it’s the sound of initial gunshots that gave many would-be victims time to get to safety.
You can find the numbers for your elected representatives here if you want to contact them about gun legislation.
