Victims Rights Group Comforts and Advises in Orlando

Caren Teves is sickened by the fact that more people become part of her grim fellowship every year — a support group for families of mass-shooting victims.

Members of the group are flying to Orlando on Sunday to offer comfort and advice in the wake of the Pulse nightclub shooting.

“We hate that our family keeps growing,” said Teves, whose 24-year-old son Alex was murdered at the 2012 movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo. “We are there to, unfortunately, welcome them into our club.”

The group has no formal name, although members have used the term “mass shooting network group” in conversation. It doesn’t meet regularly. But the families try to support each other and any new mass shooting victims.
