Supermajority’s Amanda Brown Lierman on Colorado Springs shooting:
“We don’t have to live like this.”
Washington, D.C. – Amanda Brown Lierman, executive director of Supermajority, issued the following statement today on this past weekend’s mass shooting at Club Q, a Colorado Springs LGBTQ+ nightclub, that killed five people and wounded 25 others:
“Supermajority sends our deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who have been tragically killed and to those injured in this senseless attack in Colorado Springs. I am heartbroken for those who were directly affected and for every LGBTQ+ person who must endure news of yet another shooting that was meant to terrorize their community. Everyone deserves to live safely and free from gun violence, whether that’s at a nightclub with friends, at an elementary school, on a bus coming back from a field trip, or while shopping at a grocery store.
“Enough is enough. We don’t have to live like this, and our lawmakers have the power to stop this plague of mass shootings. It is past time for the U.S. Congress and President Biden to take action to address hate crimes and gun violence. Our lives depend on it.”
