Washington, D.C. — Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement on the horrific mass shooting targeting families at a food festival in Gilroy, California that killed three people, including a six-year-old boy:
 
“This brutal killing targeting children and families enjoying a day of community breaks the heart of America.  We thank the heroic first responders who provided aid and support to those in need, and we send our prayers to all who are mourning the lives that were cruelly cut short by this shocking attack.
 
“Enough is enough.  Congress has a responsibility to every family torn apart by gun violence to act, and help advance a future that is finally free from this senseless violence.  Every day the Senate refuses to act is a stain on the conscience of our nation.
 
“May it bring some measure of comfort to the friends and loved ones of those whose lives were cut short that all of America mourns with and prays for them during this sad time.”
