After the prayer - Faith leaders press for solutions to violence

From Indianapolis-

As authorities continue to investigate the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, leaders from various faiths are speaking out.

Of course, they have offered prayers of comfort and peace for everyone impacted by the tragedy, which claimed the lives of 58 people and led to hundreds of others being wounded after a gunman fired into a crowd at a concert.

However, many of these same faith leaders are joining forces to call for solutions to prevent future acts of mass violence.

“Prayer can be a powerful healing force in a divided country, but action is also needed to solve the epidemic of violence,” said Rev. Randolph Marshall Hollerith, dean of the National Cathedral in Washington, in a statement released to news media.
