“We as a nation will come together in support of the victims of this senseless violence.  We are all thankful for the courage and dedication of the U.S. Navy personnel who serve our nation, as well as the first responders who rushed to the scene of today’s mass-shooting.  Right now there are more questions than answers, but law enforcement will get to the bottom of this and every federal resource will be made available to ensure they do.”
