WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) issued the following statement on the shooting at Robb Elementary School:
“The news out of Texas is every parent’s worst nightmare, and I am praying for the children, their families, and the Uvalde community. We don’t know all the details yet, but we do know that 14 children and a teacher are dead because of another mass shooting. It is a horrific tragedy, and yet - one that has happened again and again in this country.
“I, like so many, cannot understand how we as a country allow this to keep happening at our schools, at grocery stores, at churches, and so many other places where everyone should feel safe. We owe it to our kids, families, and survivors to take action.”
