Massachusetts Leaders Send ‘Thoughts And Prayers’ After Texas Church Shooting

BOSTON (CBS) — Many Massachusetts leaders have offered their thoughts and prayers to victims, their families, and community members after a mass shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday.

Officials in Texas said Devin Patrick Kelley, 26, opened fire inside the First Baptist Church and killed 26 people and wounded 20 others.

Governor Charlie Baker tweeted his shock.

In a series of tweets, Warren asked how many more people had to die before the NRA loses control of the country’s gun policies.

She continued, “Thoughts & prayers are not enough, GOP. We must end this violence. We must stop these tragedies. People are dying while you wait.”

Representative Joe Kennedy tweeted, “Images from Sutherland Springs are horrifying & all too familiar. Our hearts are broken for the First Baptist congregation.”

The Boston Police Department also took to Twitter.

Maura Healey, the Massachusetts Attorney General said:

“As it unfolds, first of all, my heart and prayers go out to the congregation and the people of Texas for the tragedy that they are going through right now,” said Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on the campaign trail.

“I was in church this morning, thinking about just where we’ve gone to in some case as a country. There’s really no sacred place anymore,” he added.

  1. WARREN MISSED HER LAW SCHOOL CLASS ON THE 2ND AMEMENDMENT!

    THE NRA DOES NOT CONTROL GUN RIGHTS….THE 2ND AMEND DOES!
    AND IT WORKED…

    A CITIZEN GRABBED HIS WEAPON AND INSTANT JUSTICE ARRIVED…

    So now the sad political wrangling of more gun control from the left comes out using this tragedy as a political tool. These people have no shame and the media is right up there with them, only worse because they have the platform to reach the public. How sad.
