STATEMENT FROM LORI CULLINAN, BALTIMORE VOLUNTEER WITH THE MARYLAND CHAPTER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“My heart is breaking for the people whose lives were forever changed by this senseless act of gun violence. Americans should be able to go to work, church, the movies and concerts without the threat of gun violence. While Maryland often leads the country in passing common-sense gun safety laws, this is a sad reminder that we can and should do more to prevent these tragedies.”
