"There are no words to express the horror of today's shooting at Santa Fe High School. Andy and I are praying for the victims and their families. As we mourn those senselessly killed and injured, we also mourn our national leaders' inaction. Our country cannot--and should not--accept a reality in which we continually fail to keep our children safe from gun violence. Here in Rhode Island, we're taking action to protect our kids. I urge our leaders in Washington to immediately do the same."
Raimondo also asks Rhode Islanders to lower their flags as a mark of respect.
