House Democrat Refuses to Participate in Moment of Silence for Las Vegas Victims

A Democratic congressman announced Monday that he would refuse to honor a moment of silence held in memory of the people murdered in the Las Vegas mass shooting the prior night.


Police say that at least 50 people were killed and hundreds more were injured when a man opened fire on the crowd at a country music festival from his hotel room. The shooter, identified as local 64-year-old man Stephen Paddock, is not believed to have any religious or political motivation.

In response, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton (D.) said he would refuse to participate in a House of Representatives moment of silence.

The Massachusetts Democrat appeared to be protesting inaction to pass gun control legislation.

Moulton also did not participate in a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the 2016 Orlando night club shooting, which killed 49 people.


In the aftermath of the Orlando attack, the Washington Post reported that Moulton had made the decision after he tweeted out that his “thoughts and prayers” were with the victims, only to be attacked by his constituents.

    This snake needs to be removed from office. Anymore dummycrats come forward with these insane ideas & they are sure going to be left out in the next election. The people have spoken & these idiots are still trying to think they are the majority. Look around you, the only ones siding with you are the terrorist protesters wanting to change our country into socialism.

    How sad for these Demos. What is wrong with taking a moment of silence to honor those that died. You do nothing about gun violence in Chicago and love the mayor there…….It is a sad situation but to take it out on innocents is just disgusting.

    Its not gun violence, its almost all DEMOCRAT VIOLENCE.. The vast majority of Conservative Gun owners never commit a murder, with or without a gun. These are Democrats doing these crimes, With a gun. We should put all their insane asses in FEMA camps, because they all have a contagious, dangerous mental illness.

    All these Dems are ignorant, nasty lying assholes. I hope his A$$ gets voted out. Anyone making derogatory remarks should be removed like the Beetch from CBS that opened her nasty mouth. This massacre was horrible. How would he feel if his family was in attendance.
    Why don’t you go to an outdoor concert in the near future and let the people know you will be there.

    Are you for real? You just proved how really stupid you are. It was a MOMENT of Silence to show RESPECT for those killed and injured, that’s all it was meant to be. You were asked to JOIN your colleagues and you left the room instead. So what were you trying to prove? All I see is DISRESPECT, (you ought to join the NFL.) You of all people should know that GUNS aren’t the problem, it’s PEOPLE (and will always be people) who don’t know how to use them (i’m sure you’ve heard this before,)and I doubt very much that it will ever change,
    so keep Walking out when the next MOMENT of SILENCE is requested, and make a name for yourself, It was Very poor judgement on your part Seth.

    Who knows maybe this whole sick plan has something to do with the democrats. Why not we ran guns to drug cartels in Mexico from Arizona. Looks like the dems are all to happy to jump on the gun control thing. Remember legal citizens won’t be able to protect themselves, but considering law Vegas was fully automatic gun fire even if you had a great gun it might not have saved anyone over the superior fire power that was aimed at these unsuspecting people THIS IS THE WORK OF A COWARD OR COWARDS.
