Sen. Cano statement on Nashville school shooting


            STATE HOUSE – Sen. Sandra Cano, Chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee, released the following statement concerning the horrific school shooting that took place at a private school in Nashville today:

            “This new normal of watching our children being slaughtered and hurt in their schools, spaces that are supposed to be safe havens and sanctuaries, is an aspect of our society that I refuse to accept.  We are beyond the point of recognizing that we have a serious problem in this country with children and gun violence and the excuses that prevent real and meaningful change that will keep our students safe need to end.  My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and loved ones of this horrendous and unnecessary attack and as the Chairwoman of the Senate Education Committee, I will continue working toward the solutions that will end these heinous events so that our children remain safe in their schools, as they should be,” said Chairwoman Cano (D-Dist. 8, Pawtucket).
