Statement from President Clinton on the Shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas

 

My heart breaks for the families who sent their children and loved ones off to school today at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, whose lives will now never be the same.

We owe these families—and the families who have experienced similar losses, including as recently as last week in Buffalo—action.  Enough is enough.  The American people overwhelmingly agree.  Our elected leaders at the local, state, and federal levels, regardless of party, must find common-sense ways to keep our children and communities safe.  They can do so without touching the right to hunt, sport shoot, and keep guns for self-defense.  Propaganda and paranoia have kept us from helping each other on this for too long.  We can do—and be—better.

The time to act is now.
