DNC Statement on Texas School Shooting
May 18, 2018
DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after yet another community has been shattered by a mass shooting at a school, this time in Texas:
“Again. Again we are heartbroken. Again a preventable tragedy. How many more children will be murdered before lawmakers take action? How many families destroyed and communities shattered? Our thoughts and prayers are with the Santa Fe victims and their families, but thoughts and prayers are not enough. Our students are demanding action. The families of victims are demanding action. It’s time to change our laws to protect our children.
“We cannot accept the reality that America is a place where we allow our children to be slaughtered and do nothing about it. We must come together as Americans and do everything we can to ensure that horrific attacks like this become a thing of the past.”
