UNION GROVE, Wis. – The Wisconsin chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, part of Everytown for Gun Safety, today issued the following statement in response to reports that three people were fatally shot at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove on Sunday night. Although details are still unfolding, reports state that the gunman remains at large.

STATEMENT FROM CHRISTINA KRASOVICH, VOLUNTEER CHAPTER LEADER WITH THE WISCONSIN CHAPTER OF MOMS DEMAND ACTION FOR GUN SENSE IN AMERICA:
“I am horrified by the news of the tragic shooting yesterday in Union Grove. What was supposed to be a day filled with fun ended with three people shot and killed. This devastating news reminds us that too many families have an empty chair at their table because of gun violence. As Americans and Wisconsinites, we can and must do more to keep guns out of the hands of people with dangerous histories. We owe it to our families to do more to prevent gun violence.”
