Wednesday, US Vice President Kamala Harris demanded action on national gun reform as she stops to lay flowers and pay her respects at the memorial outside the Star Ballroom Dance Studio in Monterey Park, California where 11 people died in last Saturday’s mass shooting.
"Congress must act so that we can get at least one step closer to what is right and what is reasonable," Kamala Harris tells reporters.
She continued saying "Understanding that to do so is to fully support the Second Amendment but to understand that we need reasonable gun safety laws in our country."
"We will always as a compassionate nation mourn for the loss and pray for those who survive and who are recovering, but we must also require that leaders in our nation, who have the ability and the power and the responsibility to do something, that they act," she said.
"Can they do something? Yes. Should they do something? Yes. Will they do something? That is where we all must speak up," Harris concluded.
