To my colleagues: your cowardice to act cannot be whitewashed by thoughts and prayers.
None of this ends unless we do something to stop it.

This senseless violence must end—thoughts and prayers are simply not enough. We must act to prevent this from happening again.

McConnell told reporters today that it’s “particularly inappropriate to politicize” this issue so soon, especially with the investigation in Las Vegas still underway.
