oneida-casino-gb-shooting-wearMADISON - Senator Melissa Agard (D-Madison) released the following statement after the shooting at the Oneida Casino complex last night:

melissa-agard-sargent“My heart is breaking for those in the Oneida Nation and the Green Bay area. I am thinking of the victims of this horrible violence. They were people who loved and were loved. I am thinking of the families and loved ones left behind. They will carry this senseless tragedy on their soul forever, and I am sending my love to them as they mourn this unspeakable loss.

“We can’t become numb to these horrific events. We cannot treat mass shootings as part of the background noise in our everyday lives. Over time, and with each news report, we are chipping away at the core of who we are as a nation.

“To the Green Bay community and Oneida Nation - you have my thoughts and support. I will support you by working tirelessly to bring about the changes needed to address these incidents of gun violence. I will carry you with me every day in my work as we look to find solutions to this uniquely American problem. And I will never accept that these incidents are inevitable. It is time to make change. Now. We can’t wait another day.”
