Statement on Texas elementary school shooting


APPLETON, WI. –  U.S. Senate candidate Tom Nelson issued this statement in response to today’s tragic elementary school shooting in Uvalde, Texas:

“Freedom is not worrying about whether or not your children make it through the school day alive or not. This madness must end.

“From Texas to New York City to Laguna Woods to Buffalo, mass shootings have shocked the conscience of this nation over recent weeks. We must enact serious gun violence legislation that gets at the heart of this epidemic so we no longer have to live in constant fear of the next tragedy. It begins by dismantling the NRA and defeating politicians like Ron Johnson who empower them.”
