House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to bring forth gun control legislation following Saturday night's shooting in Odessa and Midland, Texas.

Pelosi released the following statement about the tragic shooting:

“America’s heart is broken by the senseless and horrific mass shooting tonight in Texas.  The prayers of the nation are with the friends and families of the victims and the entire Midland and Odessa communities, and our deepest gratitude goes out to the first responders, who are bringing help and healing during this tragic time.

“Enough is enough.  Every day, the epidemic of gun violence inflicts a devastating toll in communities in every corner of our country, forcing far too many to endure heartbreak and tragedy.  The Republican Senate must end its obstruction and finally pass the commonsense, bipartisan, House-passed gun violence prevention legislation that the country is demanding.

“Tonight and in the days to come, all Americans stand with the Midland and Odessa communities.  May it be a comfort to those grieving the loss of their loved ones that so many mourn with and pray for them at this difficult time.”

Schumer took to Twitter to call on McConnell to bring forth H.R. 9, the universal background check bill Democrats passed in the House.

It's always amazing to watch anti-gunners call for gun control legislation before we know anything about the gunman. We don't know his identity, other than him being a white man in his 30s. We don't know what kind of firearm he used, other than it was a "rifle." We don't know how he obtained his firearm. We. Know. Nothing. And yet these people make assumptions about how some gun control law could have prevented the tragedy.
