WACO -- Many members of Congress have been speaking out this week about their thoughts on fellow Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
Our Congressman, Bill Flores, told us today that the shooting is a reminder that such a high position does not come without risk.
So now, his offices in Central Texas and Washington D.C. will be stepping up security.
They are following protocols put in place by the Capitol police.
Locally, he will be working with law enforcement in Waco and Bryan to step up more security.
