Attorney General Eric Schneiderman:
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the innocent victims of todayâ€™s horrific massacre. We stand with the people of Connecticut during this moment of unspeakable tragedy.
Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver:
My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the horrific shooting in Newton, Connecticut this morning. Our schools should be a safe and nurturing environment for our children and parents should never have to fear for their safety when they are learning. If ever there is a time to finally have a serious discussion about our countryâ€™s culture of violence that time is now.
Sen. Jeff Klein:
My thoughts and prayers are with the children, families, and victims of todayâ€™s devastating tragedy in Connecticut. Todayâ€™s news is a sorrowful reminder that horrifying acts of gun violence are all too common in our streets, our homes, and our schools. Heinous acts such as this must remain at the front of our minds as we continue to reevaluate the place of guns in our state and our society.
