WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Ander Crenshaw today (12/17) issued the following statement regarding the tragic shootings in Newtown Connecticut:

“Our hearts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of the victims killed in Newtown, Connecticut as they grieve through the unspeakable horror of that day. This tight-knit New England community is strong and united with the support of a caring nation behind it. All facets of this horrific crime will be carefully reviewed, and in that process, I fully expect that the policies and laws around gun control will and should be part of the national conversation that follows.”
