U.S. Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) today met with the families of the Newtown, Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and released the following statement:

"I met today with the families of the Newtown tragedy because I wanted to hear their stories first-hand and learn about the victims themselves, just as I did with the family of Hadiya Pendleton. The Newtown and Pendleton families, along with countless other families affected by gun violence, will remain in my prayers. I remain hopeful my colleagues will rally around common-sense, bipartisan solutions to reduce gun violence while protecting Second Amendment rights."
