Reaction from Texas Elected Officials Concerning Latest Fort Hood Shooting
Two Texas elected officials offered their thoughts concerning another shooting a Fort Hood on Wednesday evening.
Governor Rick Rick Perry issued the following statement regarding the shooting at Fort Hood after participating in a reception at Texas Tech honoring Chancellor Kent Hance.
“Today, Ft. Hood was once again stricken by tragedy. As Texans, our first priority must be caring for the victims and their families. Ft. Hood has proven its resilience before, and will again. Texas will support those efforts in any way we can, with any resources necessary. The thoughts and prayers of all Texans are with everyone affected by this tragedy,” said Governor Perry.
U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) also released a statement concerning today’s shooting at Fort Hood:
“Tonight, Texans’ hearts are once again very heavy. The scenes coming from Ft. Hood today are sadly too familiar and still too fresh in our memories. No community should have to go through this horrific violence once, let alone twice. I ask that all Americans join Sandy and me in praying for the victims, their families and the entire Ft. Hood community.”
