Assemblymember Thiele Statement on School Shooting in Uvalde, Texas

“Thoughts and prayers are not enough. Thoughts and prayers will not return 19 innocent children to their family's loving embrace.

 We cannot allow ourselves to become numb or idle in the face of such unfathomable loss and inhumanity. I stand with my colleagues to denounce the decades of inaction and demand a bold response by Congress to prevent further carnage in schools. Our children's lives depend on it.”
