Many bands, musicians, TV hosts and celebrities have had their say on gun laws and their thoughts on the Vegas massacre since it took place on Sunday night, but now country music star Jason Aldean has released a statement.

Aldean was on stage at the Route 91 festival when the first shots were fired at the crowd and was seen in footage dropping his guitar and running when he realised what was happening.

Now, he has released an emotional statement saying 'Something has changed in this country and this world lately that is scary to see. The world is becoming the kind of place that I am scared to raise my children in.'

Yesterday, another musician who was playing in a band that were on the same bill revealed that he had completely changed his stance on gun control since the attack.
