FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Congresswoman Kay Granger today released the following statement in the wake of the Washington Navy Yard shooting:

“I am horrified by the shooting at the Washington Navy Yard today.  Our men and women in uniform face dangers every day while serving overseas, but neither they nor civilians should have to face these threats here at home.  We must determine how this happened, identify everyone responsible and ensure the proper measures are put in place to deter future tragedies.  I join my constituents in praying for the victims and their families as well as the law enforcement officials who answered the call of duty today.”
