I found this great post on instagram from a local artist who lives in Vegas. Another story of first responders, nurses and others just like this of countless more angels on earth coming to the aid and rescue of the innocent victims of such unspeakable acts of violence. Although my heart is shattered, we have to stay strong! I have hope in humanity, in peace, in love, in harmony. It will prevail! We MUST rise above our differences and stop this insanity. Thank you to EVERYONE that helped so courageously, so selflessly! EMTs, police, civilians, etc etc #lasvegas Our ’s and prayers are ever with you! #Repost@gizmo_art (@get_repost)
Inktober #2. Waking up this morning and reading a post from a first responder friend Chris in Vegas simply stating "Terrible Night..." says it all. His beautiful wife Rhonda is an ER nurse and my other friend/brother Mike is also a first responder. Thankful for such great friends who are in my squad that are the ones who run in to help when other run away. .
Prayers didn't help the victims of the 273 mass shootings in 2017 alone. That number alone is mental. #guncontrol isn't about taking away your constitutional rights, but not addressing common sense gun laws is certainly taking away plenty of innocent lives.
To the people who are Blasting anyone for turning this horrific tragedy into a 'political statement' you are ignorant, and uninformed. The very reason you have and are able to defend your firearms is because of politics. Because of politics this monster was able to own 18 firearms, and furthermore was able to bring them into a hotel room.
My thoughts and prayers and love are with the families and loved ones of those affected. But nothing, truly nothing will prevent this type of horrible act of terrorism happening again unless gun control is properly addressed.
And to the people who are using the "hunting rifle" excuse y'all should stop shooting innocent animals too.
Here are the faces of some of the 59 victims and counting from last night's shooting. It is heartbreaking and sickening to witness this loss of life. They could be any of us or people we love simply enjoying a concert on a pretty Sunday night. We must remember them and this senseless tragedy and do something. #lasvegas
Tonight at @clubcumming we gathered as a community to celebrate life, justice and equality for all, and love. We sang and we collected money for the victims of the Vegas shooting and the devastation in Puerto Rico. But we all need to resist a society where guns are as cheap and available as the lives they take, and where people's worth is determined by their wealth or the colour of their skin. I'm home now, learning my lines for tomorrow, but it makes me so happy to think of the party raging on, the community I am so happy and proud to be a part of, people I feel are our future's hope.
I have proudly made the U.S. my second home for the better part of 40 years - and enough is enough! I am not a Democrat. I am not a Republican. I am a father and an artist who cares deeply about the safety of my family and fans. Once again, I am utterly gutted to be grieving the mass murder of so many innocent lives. I ask you, if not now, when? Now is the time to honor the lives lost by enacting urgently needed gun control. #PrayForLasVegas#EndTheViolence

As I #prayforlasvegas I pray for us all. Find each other out there. Let's help each other through these times. It is always okay to ask for support. One way to do so below:
You can text "HELLO" to 741-741 if you feel you need a little help and would like to talk to a counselor. It's free and confidential text. I love you.
In most of these horrific situations we feel helpless... especially when these awful things happen so far away... just trying to spread the info... if your near... here is how you can help... #spreadlove
ATTENTION PARENTS : I was going through followers of my child's IG account and clicked to see who some were. (I regularly check) it led me to find MANY MANY unsavory accounts with what I would call child pornography. I alerted Instagram of all these accounts I found. However, there are countless accounts that make up a ring of people sharing images. It is endless. I found a dozen in a few hours. Not to mention the people who follow them and the disgusting comments. I am trying to figure out if/how to report this beyond Instagram. They replied, thanking me for the report but they deemed the accounts "did not violate" IG's code of conduct. Yet most (not all) of the pages are no longer up. Coincidence? PLEASE don't let your kids go on unsupervised. These creepers pretend to be kids and have the images very subtly buried within stock photos of cars, surfing, sports, etc. #parentaladvisory#besafe#violations#watchyourkids#creepers
Let’s stop acting like we don’t know what’s going on. We do. Let’s stop simply praying. Let’s start working. How many people must die? Hundreds more? Thousands? It’s not political. It’s logical. The founding fathers didn’t imagine a world with automatic and semi-automatic weapons. They had muskets. We are the only developed nation in the world without sensible gun laws. It’s time for sanity. NOW
Still in shock by what happened in my home away from home last night. My heart aches for the victims of last night's #Vegas shooting. We are praying for you and your families. Stay strong #LasVegas. #prayforvegas
