NEW YORK, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following are Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg's remarks as delivered today in the Blue Room at City Hall:
"Well good morning, everyone. Today we're honored to welcome some very special guests to City Hall. First, with us is the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden."The Vice President, as you know, is leading the Obama Administration's efforts to implement and enact the kind of common-sense gun safety measures that most Americans clearly want, and we've been doing everything we can to support him. And I will say that Joe has been a standup guy. He is a believer in this – he did when he was in Congress, and now in the White House Joe Biden understands what this country needs and he's been willing to stand up and say so and fight for it. "We're also joined by a number of people whose lives have been deeply scarred by gun violence. Last December 14 th, Chris and Lynn McDonnell's daughter, Grace, and Neil Heslin's son, Jesse Lewis, were among 20 children who walked through the doors of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut and who never came home. Chris, Lynn, Neil: Thank you for being with us today. "We're also joined by Teresa Rousseau and Bill Leukhardt, Gilles and Joyce Rousseau, Matthew Rousseau, and Anthony Lusardi III. They're here to bear witness to the memory of another victim of the Sandy Hook shootings: Their daughter, step-daughter, sister, and girlfriend, Lauren Rousseau. "She was a permanent substitute teacher in the first grade at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and was one of the six adults at the school gunned down as she tried to shield students there. So thank you to all of you for joining us as well.
