Vice President Kamala Harris visited Highland Park Tuesday night after a mass shooting at a Fourth of July parade killed seven and wounded dozens of others. Harris called the shooting "senseless" and offered prayers to the community. "Well to the community of Highland Park, I bring you condolences from President Joe Biden and our country. I'm so sorry for what y'all experienced. And the pain and suffering. This should never have happened. We talk about it being senseless. It is senseless. It is absolutely senseless. I want for you to hold each other tight as a community. That you know you have a whole nation that cares deeply about you, and stands with you. This is an incredibly tight community i know that. And this person will be brought to justice. But it's not gonna undo what happened. And we're here for you. And we stand with you. And of course as we always say because it is true, our prayers are with you," Harris said. "The president and I and our administration have put all the resources and will continue to put all the resources that the mayor and the chief need in terms of the federal assistance … There's a lot of healing that's gonna have to happen that's both physical and emotional. There's no question this experience is something that is gonna linger in terms of the trauma." "We gotta be smarter as a country in terms of who has access to what, in particular assault weapons," Harris said. "This can happen anywhere, in any peace-loving community. And we should stand together and speak out about why it's gotta stop."
