I thanked Johnnie Langendorff and Stephen Willeford, two of the heroes of Sutherland Springs, who disrupted the shooter and gave chase with no thought for their own safety. They saved lives that terrible day 18 months ago. https://t.co/tcRu3j95hc
No community should ever have to face tragedy like this, but in the face of hatred, they never let darkness prevail. I was honored to join these inspiring Texans today for the grand opening and dedication of their new worship center. https://t.co/mzeos89nVG

Legislation like Fix NICS Act, Mental Health and Safe Communities Act & the Stop School Violence Act, now law, can help. We need to protect our schools, help those in mental health crisis, & keep weapons out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves and others
and Christian Riley Garcia and Chris Stone, who gave their lives so their fellow students could live. We must do better, work harder and faster, and join together to find new ways to protect our schools and our children from harm.
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Santa Fe High School shooting. Our thoughts are with the families who lost children, mothers, and grandmothers. We continue to be grateful to heroes like Officer John Barnes, whose brave actions helped end the senseless violence…

Sadly, there is nothing we can do to bring back the loved ones they lost that day – but passing Fix NICS was a first step and will help prevent this from happening again. youtu.be/A19FwS8QGQU
On November 5, 2017, a deranged shooter killed 26 parishioners at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs – the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history. All because his criminal record had not been uploaded to the NICS database
As #NationalPoliceWeek comes to a close, let’s continue to #BackTheBlue and remember the Law Enforcement Officers who put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. If you see an officer this weekend, take a moment to say thanks https://t.co/OhM4GdDODN

Both sides agree that the plan is dead-on-arrival. Well, it may be DOA for them. But they are not who Trump wrote the plan for. His platform is for the majority of Americans who would be happy to see Washington stand up and solve 80 percent of the problem. foxnews.com/opinion/james-… twitter.com/JohnCornyn/sta…

Kudos to President @realDonaldTrump for rolling out his thoughtful immigration reform proposal yesterday, demonstrating that the @GOP is a pro-legal immigration party. Ds are, apparently, for the status quo: currently a humanitarian and national security crisis.

“Government power was used to spy on American citizens,” Mr. Barr told The Wall Street Journal, in his first interview since taking office in February. “I can’t imagine any world where we wouldn’t take a look and make sure that was done properly.” @WSJ
House Ds took serious issues and passed partisan messaging versions, as you know, or pretended to solve non-existent problems. For example, there is no threat to coverage for pre-existing conditions. We all agree they should be covered. No sincere effort to build consensus. twitter.com/senschumer/sta…
Like so many others who were at Pearl Harbor on that fateful day, Col. Bill Hayes didn’t hesitate to fight for his friends and his country. RIP, Colonel. mysanantonio.com/news/local/art…
