U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colorado Springs, told The Denver Post’s Allison Sherry on Monday that it’s far too soon to be talking about federal gun control laws, in the wake of the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.
“Like many Americans, I remain in a state of shock over what happened last week in Newtown, Connecticut. With the investigation into the murders ongoing, it is too soon to be talking about new federal laws. In fact, it disrespects those who are still mourning,” Lamborn told Sherry.
“Until the facts are known, and we get a more complete picture of what happened in that school, I will refrain from commenting on what role Congress might play in preventing such a tragedy in the future.”
Colorado’s seven-member congressional delegation, including Lamborn, issued a joint statement on Friday after the shooting.
