Feinstein: ‘When Will Enough Be Enough’ for Congress to Act on Guns?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., responded to Monday’s tragedy at the Washington Navy Yardwith another plea for Congress to take action against gun violence.
“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. When will enough be enough?” asked Feinstein. “Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country. We must do more to stop this endless loss of life.”
The California Democrat is one of the Senate’s leading advocates for further gun control measures at the federal level, including an assault weapons ban.
Sen. Jay Rockefeller also issued a statement alluding to the broader firearms debate.
