Susan Collins finds it “extremely disappointing” that Americans want to take action against gun violence immediately after a weekend that contained two mass shootings.

Collins told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that so soon after a mass shooting is not moment for doing anything but consoling people: “there are times for political debate, but this is not one of them.”

American Bridge tweeted out the audio:

Considering there have been nearly as many mass shootings as days in 2019, people are wondering exactly when Collins will approve of a “political debate” or discussions about reducing gun violence.

Bre Kidman, who is running for Collins’ seat, also finds the Senator’s inaction “distasteful.”

Apparently, being “disappointed” is Susan Collins’ brand…

The truth is, the only people who should be “disappointed” here are the people of Maine who were expecting a Senator who would show actual leadership to solve the nation’s most pressing problems.
