Boxer Statement on Tragic Shooting at Sikh Temple in Wisconsin
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) issued the following statement on the tragic shooting at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee yesterday:
“My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims and to the Sikh community nationwide, which is in shock over this senseless shooting.
“While we mourn those lost in this tragedy, we must redouble our efforts to end hate crimes of any kind and keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those intent on mass killing. We must also end the ignorance about Sikh Americans, whose faith is devoted to peace and understanding and who have contributed so much to California and our country.”
