Rep. Carolyn McCarthy issued the following statement in response to the mass shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin Sunday:
"I mourn with the people of Oak Creek and Sikh communities across the country as we recover from this tragedy, yet another in a line of too many mass shootings in our nation. For the victims, this is a personal tragedy that will be with them forever; I hope they find strength and comfort in this time of great need.
"For our nation, it’s another sad moment to reflect and ask ourselves what we can do to fight intolerance and improve public safety for innocent Americans in a nation where guns unfortunately too often fall into the wrong hands.”
