MGM Resorts agreed to pay 800 million dollars last week to settle thousands of liability claims related to a 2017 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, which killed 58 people and injured hundreds more. This month marks two years since the tragedy, and the trauma continues to affect the lives of the survivors.

After a shooter killed dozens of people during a country music concert in Las Vegas this month, media reports began detailing the timeline and possible motives, as well as stories of survivors.

So how does this type of news coverage impact the psyche of the public? And what is the media’s role exactly?

Nevada's Democratic US Senator, Catherine Cortez Masto, is calling on Congress to take up gun control in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting.

On a rare occasion, both of Nevada's US Senators made back-to-back speeches on the Senate floor yesterday, to honor the victims of this month's horrific mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and hundreds more wounded.

Republican Senator Dean Heller told his fellow lawmakers Las Vegas has been able to come together to form a tighter community.
