Rep. Helen Giddings (Dallas) releases statement on the tragedy in Sutherland Springs:
Dallas- "On Sunday, November 5th at least twenty-six lives were lost and hundreds were changed forever by the tragic shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. Words are not nearly enough, but we pray those affected by this senseless tragedy are able to heal from the unimaginable pain unjustly thrust upon their lives.
Until crimes like these are impossible to imagine, we must work exhaustively to bring change. Time and time again, we have collectively experienced the heart break and grief of mass shootings. Opinions vary as to causes and contributing factors. Whatever the causes, we must work together as a united community to do more to prevent these devastating tragedies.
The people of Sutherland Springs, Las Vegas, and across the country deserve our vigilance. Let us honor these Texans' memories with a recommitment to stopping these atrocious and senseless acts of violence once and for all."
