As the nation mourns over another senseless school shooting that left 17 people dead, Republicans and Democratic elected officials extend their condolences and prayers to the families of the victims in Parkland, Florida.

The Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting is the second deadliest school shooting in U.S. history behind the Sandy Hook Elementary.

“Sandy Hook, Pulse nightclub, Ft. Lauderdale airport, Las Vegas and now Parkland, Florida – when is this going to stop? It’s not going to stop until the American people say: enough is enough! What is it going to take for enough to be enough?”Sen. Bill Nelson (D)
