Virginia-10th District Democratic challenger LuAnn Bennett released the following statement on the ongoing investigations into the apparent terrorist attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota:

“In these dangerous and uncertain times, we have once again been reminded that America has the finest law enforcement personnel in the world. I commend them on their outstanding and heroic efforts in response to the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota. My thoughts and prayers are with those wounded, including two police officers, and their families.

“We must be vigilant in our efforts to protect our country and communities in the face of terrorist attacks like these, and we must ensure intelligence and law enforcement agencies have the tools they need to keep us safe. Preventing lone wolf attacks are a difficult challenge that requires additional intelligence resources. We also must ensure that would-be terrorists are unable to purchase dangerous weapons and explosives. Congress must take action right now to pass “No Fly, No Buy” legislation to achieve this.

“Congress’s most important priority should be to ensure the safety and security of the American people, and that will be my chief concern as a member of Congress representing the 10th District.”
