While upset by the massacre, Tip said the Sandy Hook Elementary School event proved why there is no such thing as a safe and secure place.

“It’s a tragedy and it’s a travesty, it was a catastrophic event. My heart goes out to the families. As a parent, there’s no way that you can hear or see or observe something like that go on and not be touched in your heart.

This is the second time Obama has been named ‘Person of the Year’ by the magazine, the first time he was given the title was back in 2008.
