Hartzler issues statement on Orlando attack

(From Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler)

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.) released the following statement on this morning’s attack in Orlando:

“My prayers are with the victims of this morning’s senseless act of terror and with their families. This is an unnerving reminder of the devastation extremist ideologies can bring to our shores and the urgent need to confront this threat head on. We must ensure radicalized ideologies do not threaten our citizens in their neighborhoods and communities.”

Vicki, this is a hate crime by a disgruntled American wife beater, not a radical extremist. The radical spin isn't working here but thank you for your sincere condolences to the victims and their families.

How about at least a word of support for the LGBTQ community who was the target of this attack? Is that too much to ask? How about a little less kowtowing to the NRA and a little more support for common sense gun laws which are supported by 90% of gun owners? We are tired of prayers and "support", actions speak so much louder than words.
