Tragically, another mass shooting has occurred, this time Thousand Oaks, CA is the scene of the horrific crime.

A 28-year-old former Marine entered a crowded college bar and shot 12 dead, including a sheriff deputy, before turning the gun on himself.

With Democrats taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this week, you can rest assured that this shooting, along with the Parkland school shooting and others, will be used to move along “gun violence” legislation.

The one member of the U.S. House of Representatives who will certainly by leading the efforts to change current gun laws, is U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL).

Deutch, who is poised to join his political party’s leadership, made a name for himself immediately after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 innocent students and teachers dead.

Early today (ongoing) as the news broke about the Thousand Oaks shooting, Deutch took to social media to express his condolences, as well as his call for “gun violence” legislation.

 

Democrats appear to make gun legislation a focal point of their agenda in 2019.
