“I am heartbroken for the Fallon community and the congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fallon. This horrible news is a tragic reminder that we must do more to prevent gun violence in our communities. Churches and other places of worship should be a safe haven. We should be able to do things like worship, go to school or go to a concert without the threat of gun violence.”
