BRADY CAMPAIGN STATEMENT ON TENNESSEE CHURCH SHOOTING

WASHINGTON - Brady Campaign co-president Kris Brown issued the following statement on yesterday's shooting at a Tennessee church that left one person dead and seven injured.

"Our hearts go out to the victims, the community of Antioch, and all impacted by this tragedy in a place of worship. As a nation, we've been here far too many times in recent years. We applaud local police for asking the ATF for an 'urgent trace' of the guns used in this crime, and we echo that request."
