Press Release

Newburgh, NY - Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after the deadly shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. 

"My heart is with the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh and the police officers who were shot while protecting the innocent. Our country has got to come together to solve this problem - the gun violence has to end. It's robbing too many of us of our loved ones." 

"This shooting is a reminder that even our places of worship aren't as safe as they should be. Even after the shootings in Charleston and Sutherland Springs, we've not done enough to combat this problem. People should be able to worship freely – or go to any public space –  without feeling unsafe.”
