Sen. Barbara Boxer calls for ‘sensible guns laws’

U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer has just issued a statement after today’s mass school shooting in Connecticut.

“My heart breaks over this senseless tragedy that took so many innocent lives. My prayers go out to their families and to all those who were injured,” said Boxer, a Rancho Mirage Democrat who is scheduled to tour the Salton Sea this afternoon.

“This touches us all so deeply, and it is long past time that we enacted sensible gun laws and school safety legislation.”
