“While we may not agree on everything, members of Congress are bound together by a sacred oath to support and defend the constitution,” Flake said, before reiterating House Speaker John Boehner’s point that “an attack on one of us is an attack on all who serve.”

Flake called the shootings a “stark reminder of the senseless brutality of which some are capable.”

“These violent acts have no place in our society,” Flake said, “and we should honor those who stood up in defiance.”
