Senator Kirsten Gillibrand decried Congress' "infuriating" inaction on gun control and offered some hope for the future of gun reform when she stopped by The Late Show on Thursday in the aftermath of a shooting that killed 13 in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
The Democratic senator, who was just re-elected in New York State during Tuesday's midterm elections, kicked off her appearance addressing Wednesday night's shooting at a country music bar, the nation's deadliest since the attack on a high school in Parkland, Fl. nine months ago. The motive of the shooter is still unknown.
"Well, it is extraordinarily heartbreaking and it's infuriating because Congress literally has done nothing in the face of gun death after gun death in communities all across this country. And it is because of the greed: the greed of the gun manufacturers and the greed of the NRA," Gillibrand told host Stephen Colbert.
