Bernie Sanders Statement on Yet Another Mass Shooting in America

LAS VEGAS – Sen. Bernie Sanders released the following statement on today’s mass shooting at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas: “Another mass shooting, another horrific day for America.

 “Multiple news organizations have reported the gunman shared a racist anti-immigrant manifesto. If true, let us be clear: this would be yet another white nationalist domestic terror attack.

 “After each of these tragedies the U.S. Senate, intimidated by the power of the NRA, does nothing. This has got to change. We need a president and a Congress that listen to the American people, not the ideology of a right wing extremist organization. The time is long overdue for Congress to stand up to the NRA and pass the common sense gun safety legislation the American people want. 

“But we cannot and must not stop with legislation. We must come together as a nation to reject this dangerous and growing culture of bigotry espoused by Trump and his allies. Further we must seriously address the scourge of violent bigotry and domestic terrorism. Instead of wasting money putting children in cages, we must treat this violent racism like the security threat that it is. That means investing in law enforcement resources to combat the growing population of white nationalists who are engaging in violence.”
