National PTA President Leslie Boggs issued the following statement on the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, Calif.:

“National PTA is both deeply saddened and angry to hear of the shooting [yesterday] at Saugus High School. This is yet one more day that a child won’t make it home from school.

“While the shooting was occurring at Saugus High School today, the Senate again failed to advance the Background Check Expansion Act, a common-sense measure that can and will save lives. For years, we have called for action and we’ve said, ‘Enough is enough!’ Yet again we are met by only ‘thoughts and prayers’ from our elected leaders. Our children and families deserve more than thoughts and prayers. Continuing to merely do nothing is unacceptable.
