Dem. Presidential Candidates Immediately Call for Stricter Gun Control After San Bernardino Shooting

Democratic presidential candidates took to social media Wednesday afternoon in the wake of the mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, expressing shock and outrage over the latest mass-casualty gun crime.


Though details were scarce in the initial hours following the shooting all three Democratic hopefuls weighed in immediately on gun control.

Hillary Clinton could not wait to condemn the incident Tweeting, “I refuse to accept this as normal,” she wrote. “We must take action to stop gun violence now.”  Clinton signed the Tweet “-H,” which means she wrote it herself rather than a staffer.


Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley Tweeted, ”Horrifying news out of #SanBernardino. Enough is enough: it’s time to stand up to the @NRA and enact meaningful gun safety laws.”


Democrat presidential hopeful Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders made a similar point, Tweeting, “Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurrence in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.”


Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump Tweeted, “California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated!”
