We’ve seen enough people killed in schools, in houses of worship, in malls, at movie theaters and stores. We know killers commit these violent acts because they have mental health problems, or they are racist, or they don’t value human life,” said Tuttle. In the wake of back-to-back shooting this weekend, “we don’t need to collect more data. We need to take action and we need to take it now. Governor Sununu
