The United States Senate was in the middle of debating legislation for universal background checks on all gun purchases this morning when news broke out that there was another school shooting in America, this time at a Santa Clarita, California, high school.

The legislation had passed in the Democratic-led House earlier this year and it was awaiting votes from the Senate.

But on Wednesday, Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi decided to object the bill at the same time that a mass shooting was taking place across the country.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut tweeted at 10:47 a.m. Eastern time that he was planning to push the Senate to take up gun-control legislation: “I’m about to go to the Senate floor to ask for unanimous consent to pass universal background checks.”

He added: “Some will call me foolish for trying – one Republican objection and this fails.”

Just nine minutes after Murphy’s tweet, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tweeted there was a shooting underway at the Saugus High School in Santa Clarita.

It appears that no gun crime is too big for Republicans to do something about it.
