Democrat presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren demanded a Senate gun control vote prior to knowing details on the Midland-Odessa shootings.

Warren tweeted:

Warren’s tweet came at a time when the specific number of wounded and deceased was unknown, as was the specific type of firearm used, the means by which the firearm was acquired, and the motive behind shooting people from a vehicle on an otherwise normal West Texas Saturday.

Sen. Chuck Schumer also expressed eagerness for gun control before knowing the facts. He posted a tweet pressuring McConnell to allow a gun control vote just minutes before Warren did the same thing:

Democrat presidential hopeful Cory Booker reacted to the Midland-Odessa shootings by pledging executive gun control and a crackdown on gun manufacturers. Booker’s pledges also came at a time when the specific number of wounded and deceased was unknown, as was the specific type of firearm used, the means by which the firearm was acquired, and the motive behind shooting people from a vehicle in West Texas.
