Eshoo Statement on Shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival

July 29th, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) released the following statement regarding the shooting targeting families at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California:

“The Gilroy Garlic Festival is a unique and culturally significant Bay Area family tradition. Many of my constituents attend the festival every year and I’m deeply shaken that the victims of yesterday’s shooting include two children, a 6-year old and a 13-year old. As we continue to learn more details, my office is working to ensure support is available for members of our community that are in need.

“While we process our deep loss and sorrow, we must remember that we have the agency to prevent future tragedies. This is yet another reminder of the urgent need for gun control.”
