August 4, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement on recent shootings in Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas:

“One awful event after another. Leader McConnell must call the Senate back for an emergency session to put the House-passed universal background checks legislation on the Senate floor for debate and a vote immediately.

“When President Trump spends more time and energy denouncing Rep. Elijah Cummings and Baltimore than he does denouncing right-wing extremists who often traffic in hate and white nationalism, it shows his priorities are un-American and way off balance.”
