    After California shooting, Democrats vow to tackle gun violence

    After California shooting, Democrats vow to tackle gun violence

    As news of the mass shooting at a California bar unfolded, several Democrats promised to use their new majority in the House to address gun violence.

    A man clad in black clutching a semi-automatic pistol opened fire inside Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, late Wednesday night, killing at least 12 people, including a veteran sheriff's sergeant nearing retirement. The gunman was also found dead inside the bar, although it's unclear how he died.

    Hundreds of people — including students from California Lutheran University and private Christian school Pepperdine University — were inside the bar, hosting a country music event, when the shooting occurred.

    President Trump said he had been briefed on the shooting and praised the "great bravery shown by police."

    Ventura County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year police veteran, was fatally shot when he rushed into the venue in response to the shooting. He left behind a wife and son.

    "God bless all of the victims and families of the victims. Thank you to Law Enforcement," Trump said.

    House Democrats promised to address gun violence in the U.S., especially now that they've gained a majority in the chamber after the midterm elections.

    "Devastated to hear about the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks last night. My condolences to all the victims. I am more committed than ever to addressing the scourge of gun violence," California Rep. John Garamendi said.

    "This is not normal," said Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif. "Repeated failure to act in the wake of these shootings has allowed more to take place. Congress must come together and take action to protect our communities and save lives."

    California Sen. Kamala Harris, widely seen as a potential 2020 presidential contender, said she's praying for those injured in the shooting and for those who have lost loved ones. She called Helus "a true hero."

    "Leaders in Congress must act — not someday, but now," Harris said.

    "It's heartbreaking to wake up to another mass shooting — this one at a nightclub in California," said New Jersey Rep. Donald Payne Jr. "This is horrific! Dems have the House in January, and we are ready to take action to [end gun violence]."

    Florida Rep. Ted Deutch, a Democrat, said his party "will take up comprehensive, nation-wide reforms, but we can’t make our communities safer if we don’t do this together."

    "We need both parties to recognize that this shouldn’t be normal," Deutch said.

    "Heartbreaking to hear about what happened in Thousand Oaks last night. Sickened that this keeps [happening]. Our love, support, thoughts and prayers aren’t enough," said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash. "We need to act now [and] break the vicious cycle of gun violence & mass shootings that plague our country."

    Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., said called on Congress to "act" as "our hearts go to the victims, their families and first responders."

    "This cannot keep happening. Congress has a responsibility to act. We have a responsibility to keep Americans safe. We are failing them," Beyer said.

    "My heart breaks for the victims and families of the senseless violence in Ventura County, Calif., including Sheriff’s Sergeant Ron Helus, said GOP Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia. "We pray for them as we thank and pray for the heroes of law enforcement and first responders who rush to protect innocent lives."

    Still, other lawmakers took to social media to express their condolences and call on Congress to address gun violence:

    So just how are they going to do this? Oh I know by taking the guns from law abiding citizens. Oh wait, the criminals still have them and won't give them up just like in places like Australia and Chicago. This currant shooting sounds like another set up.

    I don't know why, but when I woke up and saw this breaking news something immediately hit me. I kept feeling this is a setup.
    I feel some dark, evil powers have gotten a hold of this guy with PTSD, maybe drugged him up, and sent him in.
    Sorry if I sound crazy, but something stinks here and the Libs can't wait to start battling the President again.

    Probably clutching his pearls with the other hand.

    This doesn't sound crazy to me. During the Obunghole term he had authorized a mind program at the VA for PTSD vets. They had posters on the wall to sign up and you would receive travel and some small amount of cash. I don't know how many minds they tinkered with or how but the program was very real. Most of the shooters have had some sort of mental intervention and psychotic drugs involved. Nobody wants to talk about drug control but they want the guns. To soon to know much about the shooter but I will guarantee you it will be used to confiscate guns.

    Very sorry to hear more murder. The Republican Senate will be tested on this. If they cave/compromise on this issue their majority means nothing.

    I wondered about that very thing. I don't recall this level of violence among returning veterans in the past, although it was a favorite theme in movies during and following the Vietnam war.

    This seems to be their way of thinking and total control over the people is the end game. What we have is some social problems that will take time to correct and with this marxist movement thats pushing to over take the country, it's this problem that needs to tackled first with a degree of expediency and when that is partly taken care of quickly go after the other issues.

    the left wants violence, they crave violence
    ANTIFA, BLM, mexican caravans
    they simply do not want you to be able to defend yourself
    because if you can, they can't exercise violence
    Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than a pesky raven?
    It is difficult to stand idly by and watch the vacuum of ignorance being filled with lies

    No, it’s because they can’t SAFELY exercise violence.
