Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton called gun controls in the aftermath of a mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, on Wednesday.
« I refuse to accept this as normal, » she wrote in a tweet after a shooting at the Inland Regional Center produced as many as 20 victims, according to the San Bernadino Fire Department.
I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now. -H https://t.co/SkKglwQycb

Almost immediately after the shooting, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) also called the shooting « horrifying » and slammed the National Rifle Association for lobbying against gun-control legislation.

Both Clinton and O’Malley have repeatedly released statements calling for gun control following previous mass shootings that have occurred during the 2016 primary.
In a statement to CNN in October after a shooting at a community college in Oregon, Clinton expressed exasperation with the frequency of mass shootings across the US.
« It is just beyond my comprehension that we are seeing these mass murders happen again and again and again. And as I have said, we have got to get the political will to do everything we can to keep people safe, » Clinton told CNN reporter Dan Merica.
« You know I know there is a way to have sensible gun control measures that help prevent violence, prevent guns from getting into the wrong hands and save lives. »
