Rep. Blumenauer Statement on Umpqua Community College Shooting

Washington, DC –-(ENEWSPF)–October 1, 2015.  Today, Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) released the following statement:
 
“My heart breaks for the Umpqua Community College family and the surrounding community as we struggle to cope with this tragedy.
 
“Far too many times in my tenure as a Congressman I have witnessed horrific shootings in my home state and around the country. We await more details on today’s shooting, but let’s be clear – it is far past time to treat violent gun crime as a public health emergency. These tragedies are at epidemic proportions and happen in America at levels that far and away exceed levels in any other developed country in the world. Something must be done.
 
“Earlier this year, I released my plan, ‘Enough is Enough,’ and I hope we can summon the political courage to tackle these issues in a holistic way and put a stop to gun violence. We need more than thoughts and prayers – we need action.”
