Video: Sen. Blumenthal was delivering a floor speech on gun violence when an aide handed him a piece of paper about the Santa Clarita, HS shooting

"How can we turn the other way? How can we refuse to see that shooting in real-time demanding our attention, requiring our action?"

This is appalling, depressing, and infuriating.

Well, maybe one way to destroy public education in our country is to make kids afraid to attend public school, parents afraid to send their kids to public school, and educators afraid to teach in public schools.

I鈥檓 genuinely sorry, I鈥檓 a Brit, I鈥檝e said this before, when nothing changed after Sandy Hook, America chose the second amendment over children鈥檚 lives. This will always be the consequence of that choice.
 
It鈥檚 ridiculous that this is the new normal in America! And folks if the nerve to tell me to be careful when ai went to Paris last week. HELLO...the US has a mass shooting epidemic and folks i鈥檝e the nerve to warn me bout international travel 馃え馃え Make that make sense馃え馃え

We are complicit if we fail to act. Thank you, Sen. Blumenthal.

How can any normal human being, look into the faces of these angels and want to do nothing to change gun laws is beyond comprehension. Money, greed and hubris as well as the desire to maintain political position as a lifetime career has blinded those in office #ThursdayMotivation pic.twitter.com/eQenvHqjFE

A tragedy in Saugus High School, terrifying students across America. How many more lives will be warped by senseless gun violence until we decide to do something? We鈥檝e got to make a change, lives depend on it, and our youth deserve better. #SantaClarita bit.ly/MAK-NRA pic.twitter.com/CU7oi5AhgZ

You would think religious folk, the kind that declare that tornadoes have something to do with gay people, would take that as a sign from God. You would think that, if such people were actually arguing in good faith.
 
If you want to address gun violence, @SenBlumenthal - then address the psychological drivers pushing youth toward acts of extremism. Happy to speak with you. #pve twitter.com/shireenqudosi/鈥

It is time for @senatemajldr to allow #HR8 to come to the floor.

Gun advocates...
This blood is on your hands, right?
Do you enjoy this?
Does this make you feel safe?
Is this what you want?
Is it worth it?
Is it?
Is it?

The GOP will turn the other way. Easily and for money In unison.

is such a great and honorable man. He gives me hope.
 
Take action now on common sense gun violence prevention! @senatemajldr What are you waiting for?!
 
In reply to @alanhe
You might say "what are the chances" but with the frequency of school shootings these days the chances are pretty freaking high.

Republicans should be forced to attend every damned funeral and face the consequences of their inaction.

you all claim to be "God fearing" and "following the will of you Christian beliefs". You all found out about the shooting, as you are about to vote. It never occurred to you that God was telling you what to do?

2 dead, 4 injured,shooter in grave condition (self-inflicted). Makes me fearful for my 3 grandkids in H.S. This is BS & last thing 14 yr olds should face. Shooter 鈥渒new the gun & saved round for himself鈥, says CNN & 鈥渢ype of gun ppl keep around for home protection鈥. WTF?
 
There is nothing about our government that's working, but we're still paying the same bill.

How much longer America?
 
 
In reply to @alanhe
this plight must end... CHILDREN ARE DYING // enact sensible Gun legislation NOW
 
In reply to @alanhe
While gun laws seldom stop a criminal perhaps you could protect minors from being interviewed during a crisis and come up with a bill? Stop shoving mics and cameras in minors faces as they flee from a shooter ! Step up and protect them from press harassment.

President Clinton just SMASHED AG Bars EXCUSES moments ago!! He calls Barrs BLUFF!! Barr uses EXCUSES that they cannot deal with GUN LAWS since Trump is being impeached! NOT SO! Clinton knows better than anyone that BARR is LYING!!

Another school shooting while a bill sits on the Senate Majority leaders desk because he refuses to bring it to a vote on the floor. More blood on McConnell's hands.
 
In reply to @alanhe
Wrong person to focus on buddy. #MoscowMitch is the guy you need to call out. Because of him and him Alone, we do not have universal background checks, magazine limits, assault rifle ban, etc. #Truth
 
In reply to @alanhe
Sadly, nothing will be done. NRA rules Trump.
 
In reply to @alanhe
Call New Zealand. They made changes in less than a week after the mosque shooting. They wanted no more blood on their hands. (Ps. Don鈥檛 try and bribe them). Just make changes. #publicsupport.
 
In reply to @alanhe
We need to do something. We send our children to school to be educated, to socialize with their peers, to grow. Not to be terrorized daily.
 
This is disturbing, America.
 
This is stunning and stomach-turning.
 
Couldn鈥檛 make it up....
 
 
Cue 鈥渢houghts and prayers鈥 and continued inaction.
 
This is terrorizing our children's generation.
The trauma will be felt for years to come. Mark my words.
WE MUST CHANGE THE LAWS... our kids are paying the price!
 
Because the @GOP is beholden to a terrorist organization called the @NRA
 
Everyone needs to ask @senatemajldr WHY?! Why is he blocking a vote on House passed gun legislation & allowing more kids to die? #DitchMitch #DitchMitch2020
 
#MassacreMitch won't allow votes on gun bills
 
 
And yet once again no bill will be allowed by #MasacreMitch
 
Money money money - NRA money to be exact.

In reply to @alanhe
A Democratic Senator railing about gun control and weaponizing a shooting incident in which the perpetrator got the gun illegally (he was 15) and which no gun control law would have stopped him, "action" indeed
 
 
In reply to @alanhe
Again Dems jump on taking guns instead of trying to fix the real problems of discipline and responsibility. It's not the guns, it's the culture. This participation makes everyone a winner. The social media bullying and Dems removing what worked in the past to teach kids!
 
In reply to @alanhe
Maybe we should address the real problems like mental illness and bullying. Cars n cigarettes kill tens of thousands of people a year, if you're serious, let's ban them, and don't forget hammers, more people are killed by hammers than guns.

Wow! He gets to actually politicize the moment - live! Way to go! Politicize the death of a student as her blood flows down the drain.

#hey hey @ NRA how many kids died today?
 
In reply to @alanhe
California has all these laws. Shooting still occurred.
 
In reply to @alanhe
He (Trump) is too remote and incapable of leadership to act. As a parent you would expect some understanding. He controls the GOP. He says he can do anything he wants. So what鈥檚 stoping action on this? Can only be money.
 
In reply to @alanhe
1. California already has virtually every gun control law ever imagined. 2. The NRA introduced the school shield program to help protect schools and they offer it freely, unfortunately your side completely ignored it. 3. Why vote on something that鈥檚 already proven a failure.
 
 
Suspect now believed to be in custody or dead. It's over. Praying for all those affected. #SantaClarita
