Statement on the Sandy Hook Tragedy
December 18, 2012
We are deeply saddened by the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. Our prayers go out to the innocent victims whose lives were cut short, and to their families and friends.
This is a time when all Americans should come together in support for the victims and their families. Sadly, some in the far-left, partisan media have chosen to exploit this tragedy with lies and innuendos that any fair and decent person would find despicable. They have falsely asserted Koch was somehow involved in the tragedy through its membership, along with many other companies, in ALEC. Koch has had no role in any ALEC-sponsored legislation concerning gun laws. Any assertion or insinuation to the contrary is a malicious lie.
