Mayor Miro Weinberger Releases Statement on Shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue

 

Burlington, VT – Today, Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement in response to the shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue on Saturday:

 

“The City of Burlington and I are grieving for the members of the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue and the entire Pittsburgh community after yet another reprehensible and deeply disturbing mass shooting. Americans have long fought and died to overcome this kind of bigotry. Our generation must now join together and force this hate and violence back out of the public square for good. We must make it far harder for those who would commit mass shootings to get their hands on a gun.”
