Rubio Statement Following Jacksonville Shootings
Jacksonville, FL – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today following a briefing with law enforcement on this weekend’s tragedies in Jacksonville:
“As the Jacksonville community works to recover from two terrible and senseless tragedies this past weekend, Jeanette and I are keeping the victims and all those affected in our prayers. I am thankful for our tireless first responders who are always there to answer the call, no matter how difficult. Earlier today, I was briefed by law enforcement on the shooting at the video game tournament, and I had the opportunity to visit with hospital administrators, trauma doctors, and survivors of Sunday’s attack. I remain committed to pushing for legislation that takes a multi-pronged approach to both addressing mental health and keeping guns out of the wrong hands.”
