Ron Barber Comments on Sandy Hook Shooting

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2012 at 12:24 PM

The Range has just obtained this press release sent from Rep. Ron Barber's office, regarding the shooting in Newtown, Conn. at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Reports claim that there have been 27 deaths, including 18 children.

Today’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. is a devastating loss for the families, the people of that community and for all Americans. It is especially painful because it took place in classrooms where children should feel safe as they grow and learn.

As those of us in Tucson know, senseless acts such as these tear at the very fabric of a community. In times like this, we come together to support each other. To the people of Newtown, we are with you today and in the days, weeks and months ahead.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who were killed or injured today as well as to the first responders, law enforcement personnel and medical teams who are treating the victims.

All of Tucson and Southern Arizona as well as the entire nation stand with the people of Newtown.
