Minutes After South Florida Shooting, Democrats In Congress Call For Gun Control

On Wednesday, at least two people died because of a shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

At least 14 people have been taken to area hospitals.

Only a few minutes after the shooting, a lot of Democratic members of Congress called for gun control.


“Turn on your television right now, you’re going to see scenes of children running for their lives. What looks to be the 19th school shooting in this country and we have not even hit March,” Dem Senator Chris Murphy said, citing a misleading statistic.

The earliest call for gun control came from Rep. Donald Norcross (D-NJ) at 3:36.
