  Girls Who Code founder speaks out after Pennsylvania school district bans her books: 'This is about controlling women and it starts with controlling our girls' "This is an opportunity to realize how big this movement is against our kids and how much we need to fight," Reshma Saujani told Insider.This summer, President Joe Biden signed into law the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act — the most significant piece of gun legislation to pass in decades. Part of the bill includes $750 million in federal funding for states to implement intervention programs such as gun restraining orders, more colloquially known as "red flag laws.

"I feel like Route 91 has been swept under the rug," Nathalie Vanderstay, 48, told People. "We feel like we've been forgotten. It was so horrific."

A 46-year-old gunman opened fire on the crowd of concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest festival from his room on the 32nd floor at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in October 2017. The incident occurred during country star Jason Aldean's performance.

Roughly 60 people died as a result of the attack, and more than 850 people were left wounded. The incident is considered one of the deadliest mass shootings in modern history.

When police checked the gunman's hotel room, they found a cache of guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition. He died by suicide.

Among the injured was Vanderstay, who told the magazine that she was struck during the concert she was attending with friends. She said she was first shot in the leg and then the stomach, as people in the crowd were scrambling for safety.

"I'm seeing people drop in front of me," Vanderstay said, per the outlet. "I'm trying to cover my head, but I'm getting trampled on by boots and people trying to escape."

According to the report, she made her way into a cab and was transported to a local trauma center before undergoing surgery.

Vanderstay added that she is "grateful" for her loved ones, and other survivors who have been by her side.
