I'm grieving for the five people who were killed today in Aurora. And I stand with the incredible first responders who were injured standing up to protect them. This is an unconscionable act of violence.

In my long career in politics, I have not seen a more regressive piece of legislation, so devoid of a rationale, so ill-suited for the condition of the country, so removed from the reality of what the American people need.
