Democratic National Committee Chairman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida wasted little time Wednesday in demand more gun control laws after the San Bernardino, California shooting.
“Today, another horrifying mass shooting has thrown another American community into agony. The victims of this mass shooting, their families, and the community of San Bernardino are in our thoughts tonight, but our thoughts are not enough," Wasserman Schultz said in a statement. "Thoughts won’t reduce gun violence in our country. Sensible reforms will."
Police said that 14 were killed in the shooting at a social service facility.
"Our nation’s leaders have a moral obligation to prevent the murder of innocent people by enacting reforms to keep guns out of the hands of criminals, the mentally ill, and those on national security watch lists. It is long past time for Republicans to join Democrats to get guns out of the hands of people who should not have them," Wasserman Schultz added.
President Barack Obama called for stricter gun laws earlier Wednesday.
