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.”
