How to use hook in a sentence?

  1. Vester Lee Flanagan:

    After Sandy Hook, and the theater shootings, everybody thought, gosh this is terrible, we have got to do something to keep people that are mentally disturbed, we got to keep them away from guns and having the ability to get guns.

  2. Kareem Abdul-Jabar:

    The first time I shot the hook, I was in fourth grade, and I was about five feet eight inches tall. I put the ball up and felt totally at ease with the shot. I was completely confident it would go in and I've been shooting it ever since.

  3. Chuck Schumer:

    First, I don't believe the meeting should take place but if it is going to happen, President Trump must press Putin hard on the issue of election interference.

And third, President Trump should not agree to weaken, lift, or curtail any of the sanctions on Russia.

  4. Neil Gemmell:

    After the shooting at Sandy Hook (Elementary School) and in the wake of similar assaults at churches and schools, Briarwood recognized the need to provide qualified first responders to coordinate with local law enforcement who so heroically and effectively serve their communities.
