Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth Statement on Mass Shooting in Orlando

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 12, 2016.  Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) issued the following statement regarding this morning’s tragic mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida:

“Today’s hateful terror attack at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub–a mass shooting targeting our LGBTQ community during this year’s pride celebrations–is absolutely heartbreaking and profoundly cowardly. My condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, their friends and their loved ones today.”

“I also wish to thank the law enforcement officials, first responders and all those who acted with bravery, courage and heroism in the face of the most deadly shooting in our nation’s history. They represent the America I fought to defend. As the President reminded the American people just moments ago, we must stand united as Americans, love one another and never turn against each other in the face of fear.”
