DeSaulnier Statement on Tragedies in Newtown, Connecticut
“I am incredibly saddened by the horrific tragedies that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut,” Senator Mark DeSaulnier said. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of today’s victims, as well as the entire Newtown community. As a parent, my heart aches for all the families that must now deal with the unthinkable loss of a child. The tragic combination of mental illness and gun violence has personally impacted my family—it is a senseless pain that no family should ever have to cope with. I hope as a society we can come together not only during this difficult healing process, but in the days, months, and years ahead to ensure that further innocent lives are not lost so senselessly.”
