Lexington, Kentucky— Today, U.S. Congressman Andy Barr (KY-06) released the following statement on the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas yesterday:

“Parents across America woke up this morning understandably shaken by the horrific, cowardly and evil shooting at a Texas elementary school yesterday.  I join them and Americans across this country who are praying for the victims, whose lives were needlessly cut far too short, and for their families.  Now is not the time to politicize this tragedy.  Instead, we must unite in our grief and outrage, support a thorough investigation, establish the facts and seek justice.”
