More than 24 hours after a shooting killed two people and wounded eleven at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, President Donald Trump on Monday evening offered his condolences to the victims of the attack, as Democrats in Congress turned up the volume on their calls for something to be done by the Congress on gun violence.
“We witnessed the horror of another mass shooting in FL yesterday. As we think of their families, we rededicate ourselves to overcoming Republican resistance to reasonable gun safety measures in a new Congress. We must be steadfast in seeking to stop the epidemic of gun violence.”
