Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton says of the deadly shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, that it’s beyond her comprehension that “we are seeing these mass murders happen again and again and again.”
Thursday’s shooting at Umpqua (UHMP’-kwah) Community College left 13 dead and 20 injured.
Clinton said after a Dorchester, Massachusetts, campaign event that the nation needs to “get the political will to do everything we can to keep people safe.”
She says there’s a way to have sensible gun control measures that keep firearms out of the wrong hands and save lives. The former secretary of state says she’s committed to doing everything she can to achieve that.
Meanwhile, the Justice Department says U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is receiving regular briefings from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which have agents at the scene.
