After yet another mass shooting tragedy, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is criticizing his congressional colleagues for doing nothing of substance to keep guns out of the wrong hands. In remarks on the Senate floor, Durbin acknowledged that no single law would prevent all mass shootings.

Wednesday’s high school shooting in Florida came 10 years to the day after a deadly campus shooting at Northern Illinois University that killed five students.
