Press Release

Washington, DC – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson issued the following statement in response to the shooting that occurred Thursday afternoon in Annapolis, Maryland:  


“It is deeply disheartening that in our nation, once again, innocent lives are lost to senseless gun violence. As someone who has seen this kind of tragedy strike my own community, we must all send our support to the community in Annapolis and commit to doing everything in our power to prevent another shooting from occurring. I remain frustrated that because Republicans in Congress continue to block all of the many meaningful reforms Democrats have proposed, we can do nothing more than send our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families. I stand firm in my pledge to work with my colleagues to pass legislation that will prevent gun violence and save lives.”
