Several Democratic lawmakers, as well as gun control advocates, said that Friday’s fatal shootings at a Connecticut elementary school should move the president and Congress to swiftly address the issue of gun violence in America.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) called on President Obama and Congress to have a “serious discussion about gun control” in response to the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Nadler’s statement came as details continued to emerge about the shooting. According to Connecticut State Police have reported that 20 children and 7 adults, including the shooter, have lost their lives.
