A hospital support group is working to ease the pain for victims of a mass shooting incident.

Palmdale (Calif.) Regional Medical Center has been hosting free meetings for victims of the October shooting in Las Vegas.

Gun control group sends lawmakers fliers with images from Vegas shooting

The fliers include two graphic images from the shooting earlier this year at a country music festival in Las Vegas that killed more than 50 people and injured hundreds. It was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history and prompted multiple lawmakers to call for gun control.

The invitations were sent to nearly 300 members of Congress who “vote with the NRA every time,” John Rosenthal, the organization’s co-founder, Read more at: http://thehill.com/homenews/news/363120-gun-control-group-sends-fliers-to-lawmakers-with-graphic-images-from-las-vegas
