Whitehouse Statement on Uvalde School Shooting

Washington, DC – Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) released the following statement on the mass shooting today at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas:

“Today, we sustained another mass murder of innocent children.  My heart breaks for the families of those killed, and for the community of Uvalde.  I wish them comfort.

“We are all too familiar with this kind of tragedy in America.  Uvalde joins a long list of American communities torn apart by gun violence in our schools.  The slaughter of our students happens with grim regularity, and it is met with equally grim inaction here in Congress.  Those who stand against progress on common-sense gun protections should take stock.  We must do something.”
