Kline Statement on the Anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) issued the following statement on the one year anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut:

My thoughts are with the Sandy Hook community on this solemn occasion. The sorrow our nation felt one year ago today remains fresh in our minds and hearts. The violence we saw in Newtown, Connecticut; Paducah, Kentucky; Littleton, Colorado; and just yesterday in Centennial, Colorado is heartbreaking and unacceptable. The victims' families are our prayers this holiday season.
