March For Our Lives Statement on the Shooting in Buffalo

New York, NY — “If early reports are true then we must not mince words: this was an act of white supremacist violence, enabled by loose gun laws and a gun culture that empowers white supremacy. This was an act of white supremacist terror. May all those who lost their lives rest in eternal peace.

The simple fact is that our leaders failed Buffalo. This unfathomable tragedy should have never happened. Our country should have done everything in its power long before this tragedy to prevent guns from getting into the wrong hands. But we didn’t. America’s young people know the bitter truth. This act of violence was only a matter of time and unless our leaders take drastic action, it is only a matter of time until the next senseless mass shooting.”
