The incident has sent shockwaves throughout the community and reignited conversations about gun violence in the country.

Reflecting on the events, Griffin expressed his dismay at the senseless violence that has become all too common in today’s society.

“Kids can’t go to school. Believers can’t go to church. Families can’t go to the grocery store. Friends can’t go to a concert. And now fans can’t go to a SUPER BOWL PARADE without the real fear of being a part of a mass shooting in America. WHAT ARE WE DOING?”Griffin wrote in a social media post.

Griffin continued to call for action, emphasizing that mass shootings should not be treated as a political issue.

“Put the politics aside, work TOGETHER and pass laws to ensure we are no longer known as the land of mass shootings,” he urged.
