Statement: Congressman Bill Foster on Mass Shooting in Orlando

Jun 13, 2016
Press Release

“Early yesterday morning, the LGBTQ community was targeted in a horrific attack at a popular night club. This attack marks the deadliest shooting in U.S. history. It occurred during a month designated to honor the rights of LGBTQ individuals. I send my deepest condolences to the victims, their families, and the city of Orlando. As the only Ph.D. scientist in Congress, I always look at the facts. Gun violence in this country is a public health crisis. Whether an isolated incident or a mass shooting in a public space, too many Americans live with the effects of gun violence. It is time for Congress to protect Americans from this violence with commonsense gun control and reform.”
