PA SAFE Statement on Shooting in Alexandria

“The thoughts and prayers of the PA SAFE Caucus are with the victims of yesterday's shooting in Alexandria and praise to the brave police and security who helped to avoid further tragedy.

As lawmakers, this attack is felt particularly keenly among us. Unfortunately, acts of gun violence like this are felt too often throughout the country, in communities, in families and in homes.

As a group dedicated to combatting violence, especially gun violence, we are also dedicated to working against the hate that often motivates heinous attacks on people of any belief, race or creed.

May those injured yesterday recover quickly so that they may return to their families and friends to heal from this traumatic experience.”
