Today, Rep. Henry A. Waxman released the following statement on yesterday's tragic shooting in Santa Monica:
"I am deeply saddened by the senseless violence at Santa Monica College. Reports have indicated that the shooter may have used an AR-15, the same military-style assault weapon also used by the shooters in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut.
"This is the seventh mass shooting in the last year. Enough is enough. It's well past time that Congress take action to keep these dangerous weapons off our streets.
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this violence and their families. In the coming days and weeks, I will do all I can to pressure Congress to take up common-sense gun measures to fix our loophole-ridden gun laws and keep these violent weapons out of our communities."
