Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement following a shooting in Aberdeen, Maryland that claimed the lives of at least three innocent people:

“The hearts of all Americans break for the victims of the brutal shooting this morning in Aberdeen.  Every American grieves with the families of those who lost loved ones, and send our most profound gratitude to the heroic first responders whose courage prevented further loss of life.

“The daily scourge of gun violence is ripping apart our families, communities and country.  Enough is enough.  Congress must take real action – not merely offering thoughts and prayers, but enacting commonsense gun violence prevention legislation so that no other family or community has to endure this unspeakable pain.

“May it be a comfort to the friends and families of those killed and the entire Aberdeen community that all of America mourns with them during this tragic time.”
