Councilwoman Rosie Mendez Statement on Orlando Mass Shooting

“Today we simultaneously celebrated the contributions of LGBTRicans at the Puerto Rican Day Parade while we mourned the loss of over 50 LGBT individuals in the nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the friends of all of the victims we lost in this tragic and horrific event. As we wait for an investigation that may explain the motive behind this tragic event, we ask President Obama and the U.S. Legislators to strengthen our nations gun laws so as to prevent the quick and easy purchase of handguns. Unfortunately we will continue to suffer these senseless acts of gun violence until our nation reforms the existing legislation.”
