In the wake of this weekend's cowardly attacks in El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH, Dr. Burgess joined Fox News to discuss a pathway forward.

Selected Quotes:

“Our hearts are heavy for the loss of our fellow Texans, and clearly we stand in solidarity with those who lost their family members and loved ones in Ohio.”

“The President came out with a forceful statement, obviously a statement of conciliation, which the nation needed to hear. It also is a forceful statement about the path going forward. I, for one, am glad to hear that his Department of Justice is willing to step up.”

“There’s no single [solution] that is going to be a panacea. I like the concept of this temporary gun violence protective order that the President has discussed. If there are red flags, give law enforcement the tools that they need to do something until the issue is settled. Provide all due process protections for law-abiding citizens. This is one of the things that I think will go a long way toward alleviating the problem.”

“There are people in the U.S. House of Representatives who do not want to give the Administration a single win on anything – whether that be drug prices or whether that be cost of health care. They do not want to see the President win on anything, because they are positioning themselves on 2020. That’s part of the tragedy of this situation.”
