Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) blasted Congress for "shirking its responsibility" and signaled a new focus on gun violence in the wake of the Washington Navy Yard shooting that left 13 dead and wounded 14 others on Monday. Aaron Alexis, the gunman who allegedly killed 12 people in the rampage, used an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun, and a semiautomatic pistol in the shooting, according to reports. “This is one more event to add to the litany of massacres that occur when a deranged person or grievance killer is able to obtain multiple weapons—including a military-style assault rifle—and kill many people in a short amount of time," Feinstein said in a statement.
