DNC Statement on Shooting in Pittsburgh

DNC Chair Tom Perez issued the following statement in the aftermath of a mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:

“Our hearts go out to the Jewish community in Pittsburgh, the first responders who put themselves in harm’s way to save lives, and all those affected by this senseless act of gun violence. No American should be afraid to worship. No community should be shattered by such bigotry. As a nation, we must elect leaders who will fight for common-sense gun laws. And we must speak out against anti-Semitism and all those who enable it.”
