Bennet Statement Following Deadly Shooting in Boulder

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after learning more about the tragic shooting at a King Soopers in Boulder earlier today: 

“My heart goes out to the families of the Coloradans, including a Boulder police officer, whose lives were tragically taken by a senseless act of gun violence. I am deeply grateful for the swift response from law enforcement and first responders. As the investigation continues, we need to revisit a national conversation about gun violence that does not regress into partisanship. It’s long past time for Congress to take meaningful action to keep deadly weapons out of the wrong hands. There are steps that the overwhelming majority of Americans want us to take. And they have every right to expect us to finally do something about gun violence in our country. Enough is enough.”
