From Governor Andrew Cuomo:
How many more tragedies, how many more families will be destroyed, how many more children will grow up without their parents before Washington acts? NY’s heart breaks for the victims of the horrific shooting in El Paso. But our thoughts and prayers will not stop this madness.
From Senator Chuck Schumer:
The situation in El Paso is heartbreaking. We are so grateful to the first responders on the scene. I am praying for the victims, the survivors, and their families. We must act to help end gun violence in America.
From Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:
Again, and again, and again, and again, and again…and nothing in response. This is domestic terrorism going unchecked and it’s complete madness. My heart is with El Paso and all the victims and their families.
