I want gun control

The reality of these endless mass shootings is becoming even more apparent. It is so sickening. A survivor from the Vegas massacre was just killed in the California bar shooting. Can you imagine what that family is dealing with? Me neither.

A man who survived a mass shooting in Las Vegas last year was among those killed in Wednesday's attack in California, his family says.

Telemachus Orfanos, 27, died alongside 11 others when a man opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, north-west of Los Angeles.

He escaped death last year when a gunman killed 58 people in Las Vegas.

A number of survivors of that shooting, the worst in modern US history, have said they were at the bar on Wednesday.

"My son was in Las Vegas with a lot of his friends and he came home. He didn't come home last night," his mother told ABC News.

"I don't want prayers, I don't want thoughts, I want gun control", she said.

"It's particularly ironic that after surviving the worst mass shooting in modern history, he went on to be killed in his hometown," his father told the Ventura County Star.

We don’t need any further proof that these disgusting acts of hate and violence can happen anywhere. We’ve already seen that.

The young people will win. We are taking steps. Some of the first steps involved the entire voting process and getting young people to vote. Getting more less represented people to vote. Getting people informed. This is just the beginning.

My heart goes out to those involved and I truly strive for a safer nation.
