As the investigation into the Newtown, CT, school shootings progresses, the ranking member of the Senate Homeland and Governmental Affairs Committee said the country should take a careful look at gun laws, but it should also be done with a closer examination of mental health laws.

Sen. Susan Collins, (R-ME) said in a Dec. 17 statement that she was “sickened by the horrific tragedy” at the Sandy Hook elementary school near Newtown in which a gunman armed with a semiautomatic military-style rifle and two handguns killed 20 children, six adults and himself.  She offered condolences for “children whose lives were cut short, for their loved ones who are enduring unspeakable grief, and for the entire community, which is struggling to comprehend this shocking act of violence.”

The investigation into how the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, obtained his weapons and his motive in the attack is ongoing. Law enforcement agencies have said the guns Lanza used belonged to his mother Nancy Lanza, who was also killed by her son in the home they shared before he left to attack the school.

“This is yet another mass murder that our country has experienced far too often,” said Collins in her statement.
