Mr. President, as I come to the floor today, I want
to acknowledge that we have an active shooter situation in
Collierville, TN, right outside of Memphis.
We have spoken with authorities. We have worked with State and Federal authorities. We are
aware that there are 13 individuals who have been shot. The shooter is
dead. But we are very grateful for law enforcement that have stepped up
in this situation and prayerful for those who have been adversely
impacted and have been victims of this shooting situation.
