Another Dem Senator Calls For Gun Control Legislation, Blames GOP For Massacre

Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts is already pushing for more gun control legislation, and blamed the GOP for a massacre that occurred in Las Vegas Sunday night.

Communities are tired of living in fear, Markey tweeted before turning his focus to the Republican Party for a lack of action on the “epidemic of gun violence” in America.

Sixty-four-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of his hotel room onto a concert below, injuring over 515 people and killing at least 50, according to multiple news reports, .

Markey isn’t the only Democrat seizing the moment to push a political agenda. Sens. Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts also weighed in before all the facts of the incident came out.

Murphy issued a statement demanding Congress “get off its ass and do something,” and Warren tweeted, “We need to have the conversation about how to stop gun violence. We need it NOW.”
