Following reports of a deadly shooting at a Halloween celebration in Ybor City, Tampa last night, the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:
“This morning, we are waking up to news of another deadly shooting. Our communities are exhausted,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “My heart breaks for the victims’ families whose children did not make it home, for the people who were injured in the gunfire and hundreds of others who ran for their lives in Ybor City last night.
“Guns turned this night out into a nightmare. How many more times do we have to wipe the blood off our streets before action is taken? Once again, we urge Congress to do their jobs and pass responsible gun laws to protect all Americans from gun violence.”
