McConnell urged to ‘get the Senate back’ from recess after latest Texas mass shooting

Saturday evening in Odessa, Texas, a shooter killed five people and wounded another 21, less than a month after a mass shooting at Walmart in El Paso, Texas, left 22 people dead and 24 wounded, CNN reports:

A gunman in West Texas who killed five people while firing from his vehicle and then from a hijacked mail truck was shot and killed by police in a gun battle in a movie theater parking lot, authorities said Saturday.

At least 21 people were injured, including some who were wounded by the shooter, Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said at a news conference.

Minutes after the news spread across cable news, Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime was murdered in the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, demanded action from the U.S. Senate, which is currently in recess:

Then others on Twitter joined the call for something to be done, and he directed his remarks at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY):

It’s probably wise advice to suggest that no one hold their breath waiting for McConnell, Trump, or any other Republican to do anything about gun violence, even after they return from their extended recess.
