Other Democrats were angry at Congress over gun control.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said in a statement Monday morning that it's "time for Congress to get off its ass and do something" about gun control.

"It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren’t public policy responses to this epidemic," Murphy added. "There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference."

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, also a Democrat from Connecticut, said he's "furious" at Congress for not acting on gun control.

"It has been barely a year since what was previously the largest mass shooting in American history — the deadly attack at Pulse nightclub [in Orlando]," Blumenthal said in a statement. "In the interim, thousands more have been lost to the daily, ruthless toll of gun violence. Still, Congress refuses to act. I am more than frustrated, I am furious."

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) said "thoughts & prayers are not enough":
