DALLAS, TX – Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson today released the following statement regarding the shooting in El Paso, Texas, on Saturday:

“I am heartbroken to hear of yet another tragic and senseless shooting, this time in my home state of Texas. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their loved ones, but our thoughts and prayers can no longer be treated as a sufficient response,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “We must move now to enact meaningful reform to combat the gun violence epidemic in our country.”

“We are grateful for the first responders on the scene, and for those who have rushed to local hospitals to donate blood for the injured - a testament to the Texan spirit.”
