Mass Shooting in Chesapeake: “Enough is enough”; “Trauma upon trauma”; “Something has to give”; “Our country cannot continue to live in fear of gun violence”


On and on it goes in America…and not in any other country in the world. As Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02) says, “Enough is enough.” And as Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA07) says, “Our country cannot continue to live in fear of gun violence. We must do more to keep Americans safe.” See below for more reactions, including:

  • VA Senate President Pro Tem Louise Lucas: “I will not rest until we find the solutions to end this gun violence epidemic in our country that has taken so many lives.”
  • VA House Dems Leader Don Scott: “You can’t say you’re serious about crime and not address the proliferation of guns. Gun violence prevention is crime prevention.”
  • VA State Senator Ghazala Hashmi: “Trauma upon trauma in Virginia. No other country in the world experiences mass shootings and gun violence in the way that we do. It’s long past time for federal action.”

As for 100% pro-NRA/pro-gun Virginia Republicans like Glenn Youngkin and Winsome Sears, their “thoughts and prayers” are completely worthless, insulting really, given that THEY are the ones who are largely responsible for the scourge of gun violence in America, and THEY are the ones who block any efforts to do something about it.
