(Hartford) – Congressman John B. Larson released the following statement:

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the students, faculty, and families affected by this senseless tragedy.  Unfortunately, we are once again bearing witness to what is now an epidemic of shootings occurring across our country.  With each tragedy that occurs and each day that passes Congress remains complicit in its inaction to address gun violence.  While members of Congress focus their attention on combating the public health crisis from Ebola, we must be engaging with the same fervor on the public health crisis of gun violence that has affected communities across our nation.”
