Senator Kirsten Gillibrand was in the Capital Region on Monday for an event at a local school. While there, she addressed the shooting in Las Vegas.
Gillibrand says Congress hasn't done enough to keep people safe.
"This is where Congress has continued to fail," she asserted. "Congress has been unwilling to pass any gun reform legislation that would pass common sense policy to keep this kind of gun out of the hands of criminals. I don't think American citizens, civilians, should have access to military style weapons. It should be for the military. This weapon particularly was designed to kill large numbers of people very, very quickly and so those kinds of weapons should be left to our military personnel who are highly trained to use them," explained Gillibrand.
The senator says she believes a number of common sense measures could be passed today.
