ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Some members of Missouri’s Congressional delegation are reacting to Saturday’s shootings that killed six and left a dozen wounded, including Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

Congressman Russ Carnahan says he’s honored to serve with Gabby Giffords. He calls the fellow Democrat a talented and devoted public servant. Carnahan says he’s shocked at the senseless tragedy and sends out prayers to Giffords’ family and the families of the other shooting victims.

Congressmen Lacy Clay and Todd Akin both send out prayers for Giffords, her family, and families of all the victims.

Senator Claire McCaskill  says she’s mad and deeply saddened that this violence is an attack not just against innocent people, but does real damage to all things good about our country and our democracy. She says no criminal punishment will be able to fix it.
