Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Sutherland Springs Mass Shooting

“My heart breaks for the victims of the horrific tragedy in Texas earlier today. These mass shootings have become appallingly and unforgivably common in our society, but we must not become numb to tragedy.

We cannot accept mass shootings as part of who we are — this can and must stop. In the memories of those we lost today in Texas, and last month in Las Vegas, and last year in Orlando, and all across this nation, we must come together and say: enough is enough.

“Our hearts break for those men, women and children we lost on this darkest of days, and they break doubly because we have seen this too many times before. I join all New Yorkers in mourning this senseless tragedy.”
