Governor Reynolds Offers Prayers Again

Tragic Shooting: Gov. Reynolds Owes An Apology

Des Moines, Iowa — Progress Iowa Executive Director Matt Sinovic issued the following statement in response to the tragic shooting at the Starts Right Here in Des Moines, and the Governor’s continued failure :

“I’m a parent. I want our kids to be safe at daycare and at school. I want our entire family to live without the lurking fear of yet another tragic shooting. Unfortunately, Governor Reynolds doesn’t care about our safety.

“She has spent years making gun violence worse by loosening or removing common sense safety laws. She has issued statement after statement offering prayers while offering no real action to improve safety. She is gaslighting all of us. We deserve better and so do our kids.”

“My heart is broken for the victims, their families, and the entire community at Starts Right Here. In addition to her prayers, Governor Reynolds should issue an apology for her failure and immediately put forward gun safety measures, like background checks, to keep our kids safe.”
