U.S. Representative Dan Lipinski (IL-3) issued the following announcement on July 29.

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement today on the mass shooting at a food festival he attended in Gilroy, California that killed three people, including a six-year-old boy:

“My wife Judy and I were at the Gilroy Garlic Festival during the shooting. The shooter was not far from us as we heard the loud “pops,” which seemed to get closer as we ran. We are very thankful to law enforcement. The tragedy would have been far worse if not for their quick action. Also, the festival staff did a great job in the aftermath. 

Judy and I are okay. Thank God. We pray for those killed and injured, and for their families.  

The level of gun violence in our nation is sickening.  It is an issue we must deal with not only legislatively, but spiritually and socially.”
