[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement after fourteen children and one teacher were killed at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas:

“My heart breaks as I re-live the shock and grief of Sandy Hook ten years ago, knowing the infinite pain that will hit these families in Texas. No words can capture my wrenching sadness for them and for our great nation that continues to be torn apart by horrendous gun violence – taking so many beautiful lives and spreading anguish and horror.”

“This senseless violence will stop only when Congress matches thoughts and prayers with action.”
