Today the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force signed on to a joint statement regarding the shooting at Family Research Council (FRC) from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations.
We were saddened to hear news of the shooting this morning at the offices of the Family Research Council. Our hearts go out to the shooting victim, his family, and his co-workers.
The motivation and circumstances behind today’s tragedy are still unknown, but regardless of what emerges as the reason for this shooting, we utterly reject and condemn such violence. We wish for a swift and complete recovery for the victim of this terrible incident.
