                               RESOLUTION


 
Condemning the brutal and senseless attack at a country music festival 
in Las Vegas, Nevada, honoring the memory of the victims of the deadly 
  shooting, offering condolences to, and expressing support for, the 
families and friends of the victims and all of the individuals who were 
 affected by the attack, and applauding the dedication and bravery of 
 law enforcement officers, firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical 
   technicians, medical professionals, hotel security and staff, and 
             community members in responding to the attack.

Whereas, in the late hours of Sunday, October 1, 2017, a 64-year-old man from 
        Mesquite, Nevada, killed 58 individuals and wounded more than 500 
        innocent individuals in a horrific attack at the Route 91 Harvest 
        festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, with more than 22,000 individuals in 
        attendance;
Whereas President Donald Trump called the attack an act of pure evil and said 
        that unity cannot be shattered by evil and that the bonds between the 
        people of the United States cannot be broken by violence;
Whereas the attack is the deadliest mass shooting in the modern history of the 
        United States;
Whereas the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and other law enforcement 
        professionals within the city of Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada, 
        including emergency response teams from Henderson and North Las Vegas, 
        the Nevada Department of Public Safety, the Federal Bureau of 
        Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, 
        the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, military 
        service members and veterans, ambulatory services, and other emergency 
        and health care professionals responded to the attack bravely, 
        admirably, and in a coordinated manner, saving many lives;
Whereas doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other medical professionals worked 
        around the clock under harrowing circumstances to provide life-saving 
        care for hundreds of victims;
Whereas, during the attack, countless civilians selflessly assisted victims and, 
        following the attack--

    (1) hundreds of individuals stood in long lines to donate blood for 
those who were injured in the attack; and

    (2) the people of Las Vegas, the State of Nevada, and the United States 
expressed overwhelming financial, physical, and emotional support for the 
victims and the families of the victims;

Whereas local organizations, businesses, and caregivers came together with 
        Federal, State, and local government agencies to support the victims and 
        help the community heal; and
Whereas Nevada has a vibrant and renowned tourism economy that will continue to 
        thrive, attracting and welcoming millions of visitors from across the 
        United States and internationally, and emergency management officials 
        will diligently dedicate local and Federal resources to boost public 
        safety and security in Las Vegas, Nevada: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the Senate--
            (1) condemns the horrific attack at the Route 91 Harvest 
        festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 1, 2017, in which 58 
        innocent individuals were killed and more than 500 innocent 
        individuals were injured;
            (2) honors the memory of the victims killed in the attack 
        and offers heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies to the 
        families, loved ones, and friends of the victims;
            (3) expresses hope for a full and speedy recovery by, and 
        pledges continued support for, those who were injured in the 
        attack;
            (4) offers compassion to those who attended the event, but 
        were not physically injured, and are dealing with symptoms of 
        post-traumatic stress or seeking grief counseling;
            (5) recognizes the spirit and resilience of the Las Vegas 
        and Nevada communities; and
            (6) applauds the dedication and bravery of local, State, 
        and Federal law enforcement and counterterrorism officials and 
        emergency medical and health care professionals for their 
        coordinated efforts in responding to the attack, securing the 
        community, and providing treatment.
