All three Democratic presidential candidates are using the San Bernardino shooting Wednesday to call for stricter gun control measures.
Martin O’Malley kicked things off with a missive against the National Rifle Association.

Frontrunner Hillary Clinton followed suit with a personally signed tweet about how she “refuses to accept” gun violence.
Not to be outdone, Bernie Sanders put forth a similar statement.
Mass shootings are becoming an almost-everyday occurrence in this country. This sickening and senseless gun violence must stop.

Few if any details about the shooter or shooters were known when the candidates fired off their gun-control tweets, though unconfirmed witness reports identified at least one shooter as a Middle Eastern man.
