Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement on the 10th Anniversary of the Fort Hood shooting in Killeen, Texas:

“Ten years ago, today, 13 precious people – soldiers and civilians – were brutally massacred at the hands of evil. The shooting spree at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas is still to this day the worst mass murder at a U.S. military installation in U.S. history. 

“The malicious actions of radical Islamists have claimed far too many innocent lives. Even political correctness should not have prevented people from noticing he had been radicalized and was a threat. Thankfully, we now have a President and an administration who understand radical Islamic jihadists are a danger to our way of life.”

“Our hearts continue to empathize with the loved ones of the victims whose lives were tragically cut short that day. We can honor their loss by fighting apathy or political correctness that turns a blind eye to oncoming terror.”
