[VIDEO] CT Congressman Speaks on House Floor About Tragedy in Newtown

Jim Himes: Guns "were designed with the explicit purpose of killing as many people as rapidly as possible."

 

U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., 4th District, spoke on the House floor Monday about the attacks at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"I looked at the photographs of the parents at those funerals and tried to imagine the bottomless grief, the anger, the questions they must have, and of course, that is impossible," he said. "At the very front of those questions is the question of why, something we will all struggle with individually..." 

"We are entrusted by our constituents with one thing, which is to ensure that this does not happen again."
