Cooper Statement on Navy Yard Shooting

“In the wake of the events at Washington, D.C.’s Navy Yard yesterday – in the wake of another senseless massacre of innocent civilians – nothing can be said to heal the
pain of those inconsolable ones who have lost family, loved ones and dear friends.

Yet however singular their suffering, America suffers with them. We suffer collectively for yet another incident of mass shooting and death. The unfortunate truth is that sensible and
strengthened gun regulations might not have saved the lives lost—but, by the same token, we can never know now whether they might have contributed to preventing this tragedy.

Today we suffer for those who have been lost—but tomorrow we must fight to put in place
policies that will reduce the likelihood of the next tragedy from occurring.”
