STATEMENT FROM MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEY CYRUS R. VANCE, JR. ON SUTHERLAND SPRINGS MASS SHOOTING

"Our hearts are with the Sutherland Springs community, its brave first responders, and all who perished or were injured as another mass murderer transformed a place of peace, kindness and worship into a site of unconscionable carnage. Our lawmakers' reverence for supremely lax gun laws must end."
