Ms. CHU. This Friday, an unimaginable horror happened. The most innocent amongst us, 20 beautiful children, ages 6 and 7, were gunned down in cold blood, and six adults died trying to save these children's lives. My heart breaks for these families, and I send my deepest sympathies to the Newtown community and to all who are struggling through this unthinkable tragedy.

Sandy Hook made clear what we've known for too long: that we are not doing enough to protect the public from deadly weapons, that we are not doing enough to address mental health issues in our society, and that we are not doing enough to stand up to those who are actually saying that more guns, not less, are the solutions to mass shootings.

This must change. For the sake of our children, I say enough is enough. Congress must act to put a stop to this senseless gun violence.
