Senator Collins’ Statement on Texas School Shooting

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins issued this statement following the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas:


“The brutal attack on school children and teachers in Uvalde, Texas, is a horrific crime. 


“Although we are still waiting for more details, it is hard to believe that someone who would do this was not severely mentally ill.  Congress should look at enacting a yellow flag law based on the one we have in Maine, which has due process rights and also involves a medical professional in the decision.”
