Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York is saying that "now ... is that time to have a serious about gun control," in response to the shooting today in Connecticut.
"I am absolutely horrified by news of the cold-blooded shooting of dozens of children in Newtown, Connecticut," said Nadler in a statement. "Yet another unstable person has gotten access to firearms and committed an unspeakable crime against innocent children. We cannot simply accept this as a routine product of modern American life. If now is not the time to have a serious discussion about gun control and the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our society, I don’t know when is. How many more Columbines and Newtowns must we live through? I am challenging President Obama, the Congress, and the American public to act on our outrage and, finally, do something about this."
