Sens. Carper & Coons on Courthouse Shooting

Feb 11, 2013 -- 10:49pm

Senator Tom Carper says of the shooting Monday at the New Castle County Courthouse that it’s a reminder of the need for our leaders in Dover and Washington to have a thoughtful conversation about how to address and reduce gun violence.  But today we grieve for those who were lost and those who were injured.


Senator Chris Coons, who is also the former New Castle County Executive, says he and his wife were shaken by the news of the shooting Monday morning at the New Castle County Courthouse.  He adds that this kind of violence has no place in our society or in our community and says we must honor the people we lost and how two were saved thanks to the bulletproof vests they wore.
