Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-28), today issued the following statement following the fatal shooting of firefighters in Webster, NY early this morning.

“Today’s violence is an unthinkable tragedy that has taken the lives of our friends, neighbors and loved ones. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the public servants who died today and the families of those wounded. Our nation must address out-of-control gun violence and I am firmly committed to doing my part. Congress must pass comprehensive legislation as soon as possible and bring an end to the senseless gun violence that has taken too many innocent lives.”

Mark Wozniak, WBFO's local All Things Considered host, has been at WBFO since mid-1978.
