Jun 13, 2016 Issues: National Security

Congresswoman Kay Granger released the following statement regarding the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub:

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Orlando, and the victims and families of those who were murdered or injured. With 49 people dead and many more injured, this is the worst terrorist attack on American soil since September 11, 2001. It is a painful reminder that we are not immune at home to the radical Islamic terrorism we see around the world. The threat from radicalized individuals is very real, and we must remain vigilant in our fight against terror. We must also support our troops and international partners as they fight against terrorism abroad, and provide our First Responders with the tools and training to prevent it in our nation.”
