 In a related matter, Senator Jesse Hamilton and Council Member Robert Cornegy pledged "to work with other elected officials and law enforcement to strengthen legislation and reduce the probability of mass attacks on innocent civilians. As people of good conscience from every faith, sexual orientation, and background, we will work together to eradicate hatred and inspire love."
