Statement: Congresswoman Speier On Today's Connecticut School Massacre


Location: San Mateo, CA

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo) released the following statement on the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut that reportedly killed 27 people, 20 of them children:

"Watching in horror and disbelief at what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School this morning, I can't find words to describe the shock and sadness I am feeling for the children and adults who were senselessly murdered. My thoughts and prayers are with the parents, families and school employees in Newtown, Connecticut who are confronting an unspeakable tragedy.The senseless taking of 26 lives raises so many questions about why this happened and what can be done to make certain it is not repeated elsewhere. But these questions have been asked before and each time the response has been one of grief followed by inaction. Perhaps, this latest tragedy will lead to the kind of policies that will effectively prevent troubled people in this country from obtaining guns capable of massacring innocent people."
