Make sure Vegas Victims Fund only goes to people who don't sue Vegas, Clark County or MGM.

We understand people are grieving and searching for answers as to how and why such a terrible tragedy could happen. However, the City of Las Vegas, Clark County, and MGM have stepped up to do everything we can to comfort survivors, victims families and loved ones. Sadly, some are now using this tragedy to try to get monetary damages from the city, county and the owner of the property where this tragedy occurred, MGM Resorts.
Several organizations throughout our amazing community have stepped up to try to help with the financial and emotional burden these people are facing. MGM Resorts, Boyd Gaming, Airbnb and more have offered free lodging. AMR has waived costs for ambulance services. Zappos has offered to cover all funeral costs for victims. Allegiant and Jet Blue have offered free flights. Tens of thousands of Las Vegans have lined up to give blood and bring food and toiletries to those in need. A fund has been set up to help cover hospital costs and compensation for emotional pain. It has raised $10.8 million to date.
This petition is for everyone who has given to the Victims Fund set up by County Commissioner Steve Sisolak and Sheriff Joe Lombardi. Let's make sure people who choose not to sue will not have to share that $10.8 million we've raised with those who are trying to get additional funds through legal actions against parties who were not responsible for this horrible tragedy.
By signing this, you would be giving families a choice. Either pursue legal action against the city, county and/or MGM Resorts or apply for access to the funds we've raised. It's not fair or just that those who don't pursue legal action against these entities should have to share funds with those who seek additional compensation through legal action.
This does not apply to those who sue the family of the suspect or gun manufacturers - it only applies to those in the community who are not responsible and are already doing everything in their power to help people get through this tragedy.
