On Thursday, the Senate adjourned for a 10-day recess after failing to take action on gun violence in the wake of the mass shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde, Texas. Democrats rallied outside the Capitol demanding gun control, while rejecting Republican calls to arm teachers and school resource officers. This is California Senator Alex Padilla.
Sen. Alex Padilla: “And no, putting more armed adults in schools is not the answer. If more guns was the answer, the United States of America would be the safest nation in the world. But it’s not.”
