Does he have no shame?
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) put out a tweet calling for expanded gun control without knowing the details of the Midland shooting.
He specifically called for Senate passage of H.R. 8, the universal background check bill passed by the Democrat-controlled House in February.
Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, & everyone injured in the shooting in Odessa & Midland, TX.

Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has already signaled that a background check bill will be part of the discussion once the Senate reconvenes.
The firearms used in the El Paso, Texas, attack and the attack were each acquired legally. So a background check bill would have done nothing to prevent those heinous crimes.
