MADISON – Wisconsin State Senator LaTonya Johnson (D – Milwaukee) released the following statement regarding the shooting this morning at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia:

“My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to those injured and affected by the tragic act of violence this morning.

“Far too often, news and images of gun violence ravage our communities and cause unnecessary pain and despair.

“Whether on a baseball field, in a nightclub, on our streets, or in our classrooms, everyone deserves the right to live freely without the threat of being shot or a victim of violence.

“As public servants across the political spectrum, I believe we all love our community and hope we can work together to ensure that our neighbors and families are safe and secure from senseless gun violence.”
