Reed to Cuomo: Stop Playing Politics with Tragedy

Tom Reed calls on Governor Andrew Cuomo to stop politicizing the tragedy in Las Vegas.

“It is disappointing that Andrew Cuomo would politicize the tragedy in Las Vegas to promote himself and blame Republicans,” said Tom Reed. “After this horrific event it’s time to come together as Americans to support one another. As authorities work to determine a motive for the heinous crime, we should follow the example of the Las Vegas community and unify around the victims, first responders, and their families.”

Andrew Cuomo criticized the “overwhelming cowardice” of Congress and called Republicans “disgusting” for not pushing for additional gun control measures the day after the Las Vegas shooting.

“Just one day after the deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history, our Democrat opponents are already blaming Tom Reed,” said Nicholas Weinstein, Campaign Manager for Tom Reed for Congress. “As they use the tragedy for political gain and to call for additional restrictions on our Second Amendment rights, they are showing they’re willing to do and say anything to advance their extreme liberal agenda.”
