McConnell on the Sutherland Springs Shooting
‘As we continue to learn the details of yesterday’s tragic events, I - along with all the members of the Senate - will keep the victims of this tragedy and their families in my prayers.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding yesterday’s tragic shooting in Sutherland Springs, TX:
“For most Americans, a church is a place of worship and love — a place where the faithful go to feel mercy and compassion — which is why what happened in Texas yesterday is so difficult for many to comprehend. Why would an individual do this? Families lost so much. Our hearts go out to them in this time of untold grief.
“Our gratitude also goes out to the civilians and first responders who answer the call when others are in need. As we continue to learn the details of yesterday’s tragic events, I – along with all the members of the Senate – will keep the victims of this tragedy and their families in my prayers.”
