Congressman Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) issued the following statement regarding the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT:

“Our country mourns with unbearable heartache for the families in Newtown, Connecticut. This week, 28 families will lay their children and loved ones to rest during a season meant for celebration and joy, and we solemnly realize comfort can only come from a higher power. As we search for understanding and gain minute-by-minute explanations of how an unfathomable tragedy of this magnitude occurred, we must be judicious in our response. However, our immediate focus lies at Sandy Hook Elementary School where our support and prayers are needed most this holiday season.”
