Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement after President Obama outlined the recommendations of his task force to protect our children and communities from gun violence:


"I thank the President's task force for its thoughtful recommendations. I am committed to ensuring that the Senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. The tragedy at Sandy Hook was just the latest sad reminder that we are not doing enough to protect our citizens - especially our children - from gun violence and a culture of violence, and all options should be on the table moving forward."
