April 27, 2019

San Francisco— Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) issued the following statement in response to today’s synagogue shooting in San Diego County:  

"Six months to the day after the Tree of Life synagogue massacre, we see another brutal synagogue shooting in San Diego County. As we mourn, let’s recommit to end the hate violence against the Jewish community and all communities currently gripping our nation. This is not who we are."

"As a Jew, these shootings rock me to the core. The history of the Jewish people is a history of violence against our community. We are a resilient people, as we always have been. But the hate gripping our nation puts us all in danger. We must root out this hate and end it."
