Ben Samuels (MO-02) Responds To the Tragedy in Uvalde, Texas

What happened today in Texas is an unspeakable tragedy.

We cannot allow this to keep happening. We have to find a way to make things better. We have to do more to keep guns out of the hands of violent criminals. We need to act.

I’ve had the opportunity to speak at high schools all across the district over the past few months, and time and again, gun violence comes up as a top-of-mind issue for high school students.

It shouldn’t have to be that way, and we need elect people with the courage to act.
