Pelosi Statement on the Navy Yard Shooting

San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., which has left at least 12 dead:

“Our prayers rest with the families and loved ones of those killed at the Washington Navy Yard today.  Our thoughts remain with the injured and all those now recovering from this unspeakable tragedy.

“Every day, the men and women of our Navy and across our Armed Forces lay their lives on the line on distant shores; they should not be forced to confront the horrors of gun violence here at home. 

“Members of Congress always stand with the members of our military.  Today, we hold a special place in our hearts for those who serve our country at the Navy Yard and for all caught in the crossfire of today’s horrible attack.  We offer our condolences to the victims and stand prepared to support them and their families in the days and weeks to come.”
