Mark Kelly on Ross Township Shootings

from the inbox last week:

CAPT. MARK KELLY STATEMENT ON SHOOTING AT PENNSYLVANIA TOWN HALL MEETING "Gabby and I were saddened to hear about the terrible tragedy in Ross Township. The shooting bears a heartbreaking similarity to the Congress on Your Corner event in Tucson where a disturbed person fired dozens of rounds, wounding and killing Americans as they participated in one of the cornerstones of our democracy: a public meeting with elected officials. These horrific shootings have become all too frequent, and we've learned that they don't discriminate. They can happen anytime, anywhere, from Tucson in the Southwest desert, to Aurora in the Rocky Mountains, to Oak Creek in suburban Wisconsin, now to Ross Township in rural Pennsylvania. We have to do more -- all of us -- to make sure future tragedies like last night's aren't visited upon other communities."
