Rep. Cori Bush’s car hit by gunfire in St. Louis

Missouri Democratic Rep. Cori Bush confirmed on Thursday that her car was struck by gunfire last weekend in St. Louis.

“I’m touched by everyone who has reached out. Thankfully no one was harmed. But any act of gun violence shakes your soul. That’s why our movement is working to invest in our communities, eradicate the root causes of gun violence, and keep everyone safe,” she tweeted.

The incident is not the first time Bush has experienced gunfire to her vehicle. She shared a story regarding a previous incident in 2020 as well.

“My car took the bullets. I am safe. When I say that I am the people I serve, it’s not a slogan! A bullet went through my door handle on one side of the car, another went through my tire on the other side.

“I’m committed to taking us from ‘surviving St. Louis’ to ‘living it,'” she added in another post.

The serious event reveals concerns even our lawmakers face regarding public safety in America’s cities.
