Gillibrand Statement On Texas Elementary School Shooting

May 24, 2022

Addressing the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement:

“Less than two weeks since the Buffalo shooting, another community has been devastated by gun violence. My heart is with the victims, their loved ones and especially with the parents of these innocent children. We are the only country in the world that tolerates mass shootings at our schools, stores and places of worship, a fact that is as horrific as it is heartbreaking. The American people must demand that all of our leaders act to stop these senseless killings and hold them accountable if they refuse to do so.”
