We are still awaiting many of the details of this latest mass shooting in San Jose, but there are some things we know for sure. There are at least eight families who will never be whole again. Every life taken by a bullet pierces the soul of our nation.— President Biden (@POTUS) May 26, 2021
We must do more.
US Police say the shooter was an employee of the Valley Transportation Authority, which operates the light railway in Silicon Valley.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on San Jose shooting: "There's a numbness I imagine some of us are feeling, because there's a sameness to this. Anywhere, USA. It just feels like this happens over and over and over again. Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat." pic.twitter.com/QAiPU9NcC3— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) May 26, 2021
