WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.) released the following statement today after a gunman killed at least 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida:

“It's not enough to send thoughts and prayers to the grieving families. We must do more. Sadly, Congressional leaders refuse to bring even the most minimal commonsense gun safety measures to the floor of the House or Senate. But we cannot be silent. In sober memory of the thousands who have been victimized by gun violence, we will keep fighting for a meaningful response to this terrible epidemic.”
