Statement from FCA President & CEO Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds on the Buffalo Shooting

May 16, 2022 | Happenings, News

“As families in New York mourn the horrific loss of life in Buffalo this weekend, we mourn alongside the people who loved them and the communities that have been rocked by the hateful nature of these shootings. Gun violence and hate-filled rhetoric – especially when combined – are tearing our country apart. Congress needs to pass responsible gun safety legislation, and people in positions of power, including the media and elected officials should understand that constantly questioning the most basic rights of our black and brown neighbors gives a green light to people like this 18-year-old white supremacist. Though he acted alone in gunning down 10 people, hate crimes never occur in a vacuum and we should all do our part to foster safe environments that value diversity, inclusion and justice.”
