Congresswoman Janice Hahn released the following statement on today's mass shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut:
"I am just heartbroken by what has happened at the elementary school in Connecticut. When you drop your kids off at school in the morning, you expect them to be safe. It is a desperately sad day for our country. As a parent, it is too terrible for words. My thoughts and prayers are with the children and their families in these dark hours.
This never should have happened. I am willing to work with Congress in any way to try and prevent this from ever happening again."
