N.M. Delegation Statement on Mass Shooting in Farmington

FARMINGTON – U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) and Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) and U.S. Representatives Teresa Leger Fernández (D-N.M.), Melanie Stansbury (D-N.M.), and Gabe Vasquez (D-N.M.) issued the following statement in response to a mass shooting in Farmington, N.M.:

“We are devastated by today’s mass shooting in Farmington, New Mexico. As we await further updates, we are grateful to our state and local law enforcement officers who responded to the scene, and to our health care providers who are caring for those injured. Our hearts are with the families of the deceased and those injured. We will continue working to ensure federal resources are made available as today’s shooting is investigated.

“Although Congress took major action to combat gun violence last year through the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, today is a painful reminder that we must do more. We are committed to fighting for sensible gun safety measures that will keep New Mexicans safe.”
