While a number of Democrats in Congress called for some type of legislative response to the mass school shooting in Connecticut, there was no real
agreement on what would be the best way to address that tragedy, as the White House made clear there will be no rush of gun control proposals right now.
“It’s a complex problem that will require a complex solution,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney at Monday’s briefing.
“No single piece of legislation, no single action will fully address the problem. So I don’t have a specific agenda to announce to you today,” Carney added.
While the White House side stepped the issue for now, Democrats in Congress were making more noise about what they describe as “common sense” gun reforms, like a ban on the sale of semi-automatic assault weapons.
