Shaheen Statement on Orlando Shooting

June 12, 2016

U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen released the following statement on the shooting in Orlando, Florida:

"‎I was horrified to learn of the tragic mass shooting in Orlando. My thoughts are with the victims, their families, the first responders and medical staff. While much is still unknown, this is already the deadliest mass shooting in our nation's history.  Once again, a deranged and hateful individual has indiscriminately taken human life and had the ready means to do so. We must not grow numb to these acts of violence. This tragedy should bind us together as Americans and strengthen our resolve to overcome terrorism in all its forms."
