Mayor Miro Weinberger Releases Statement on Buffalo Shooting

Burlington, Vt. – Today, Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement in response to the shooting in Buffalo on Saturday afternoon:


“I am outraged and heartbroken by the news unfolding about what is clearly a racially targeted mass shooting in Buffalo, New York. This type of hate should have no place in our country. My thoughts, and the thoughts of the Burlington community, are with Buffalo. This terrible tragedy, on top of so many prior mass tragedies, compels us to continue to fight for gun violence policy reform. As I’ve said too many times, it is far too easy for violent white supremacists, dangerous criminals, and unstable individuals in this country to get their hands on guns.”
