Pelosi Statement on Elementary School Shooting in Uvalde, Texas

San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement after the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas that killed fourteen children and a teacher and injured others:

“Words are inadequate to describe the agony and outrage at the cold-blooded massacre of little schoolchildren and a teacher at Robb Elementary School today.  This monstrous shooting stole the futures of precious children, who will never experience the joys of graduating from school, chasing the career of their dreams, falling in love, even starting a family of their own.

“The hearts of all Americans are broken as we pray for the families left forever shattered and a community left forever scarred by the unspeakable grief of losing a loved one.  We also extend our sympathies to all those who have lost a loved one to gun violence over time, as this horrible crime deepens their suffering.

“We are united in our deep gratitude for the heroes who put their lives on the line to respond to this deadly mass shooting.

“Across the nation, Americans are filled with righteous fury in the wake of multiple incomprehensible mass shootings in the span of just days.  This a crisis of existential proportions – for our children and for every American.  For too long, some in Congress have offered hollow words after these shootings while opposing all efforts to save lives.  It is time for all in Congress to heed the will of the American people and join in enacting the House-passed bipartisan, commonsense, life-saving legislation into law.”
