Former President Barack Obama used social media today to show his support for the victims of the “nonsensical tragedy” that took place on Sunday night in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, in which at least 50 people died and more than 400 were injured.
“Michelle and I are praying for the victims of Las Vegas. Our thoughts are with their families and with anyone else who is suffering another nonsense tragedy,” wrote the former president (2009-2017) in his personal Twitter account.
The events took place during a concert on the central Las Vegas Boulevard when the alleged massacre author Stephen Paddock opened indiscriminately on the crowd from his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel, which is only a few meters from where the event was held.
The reasons Paddock, 64, decided to mow the lives of dozens of people before ending his own life, according to local police.
Obama, who had always been in favor of changing legislation to increase gun control, had to deal with the massacre at a nightclub in Orlando, Fla., Which in 2016 left 49 people dead. which until today had been the deadliest shooting in the country’s history.
