(Pleasantville, New Jersey) – Congressman Jeff Van Drew released the following statement regarding the shooting at the Pleasantville High School football game on Friday, November 15, 2019:

“I am heartbroken to hear of the senseless act of violence at the Pleasantville High School football game on Friday evening. My thoughts are with the victims and their families, as well as all those affected. Unfortunately, thoughts won’t help parents feel safe sending their kids to school, nor does it do anything for those who have lost loved ones. Right now, we just come together as a community, but we must act on common sense, bipartisan solutions to this recurring issue.”
