(NaturalNews) Several Democrats have once again decided to exploit a terrible tragedy - in this case, scores of dead children - in a naked bid to push their own selfish political agenda.

Within hours of the horrific murder of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., by 20-year-old Adam Lanza, Rep. Jarrold Nadler of New York called on President Obama and the rest of Congress to have a "serious discussion about gun control."

Nadler - a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which was founded in 1991 by avowed socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont - made his statement well before all of the murdered children and adults were removed from scene.

Gun control redux

"I am absolutely horrified by news of the cold-blooded shooting of dozens of children in Newtown, Conn.," Nadler said in a statement on Friday. "Yet another unstable person has gotten access to firearms and committed an unspeakable crime against innocent children. We cannot simply accept this as a routine product of modern American life."

"If now is not the time to have a serious discussion about gun control and the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our society, I don't know when is," he continued. "How many more Columbines and Newtowns must we live through? I am challenging President Obama, the Congress, and the American public to act on our outrage and, finally, do something about this."

He was echoed by another New York Democrat, Rep. Nita Lowey, who labeled the shooting "senseless and heartbreaking." And while those comments accurately reflect the sentiment of millions of Americans, Lowey went on to call for "concrete action" to prevent further gun violence - action that, of course, includes new gun control measures.

"We cannot tolerate mass shootings as a mere inconvenience or a normal part of our everyday lives," she said. "Easy availability of the deadliest weapons to the most dangerous people has cost countless lives and caused immeasurable suffering, never more so than today. Our expressions of sympathy must be matched with concrete actions to stop gun violence."

Yet another Dem, Rep. Ed Markey of Massachusetts - another Progressive Caucus member - chimed in on the gun control theme.

"It is past time for a national debate on gun control and solutions to ensure that this terrible trend in mass shootings finally comes to an end," he said.

Blame the guns, not the shooter

Here are additional comments by more gun-control Democrats:

-- Yet another New York Dem, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy - whose husband was murdered in 1993 on a Long Island commuter train, where gun control policies were in effect - said in a release: "There are a lot of unanswered questions right now, but one thing is clear - there's too much gun violence in our country. These shootings are becoming all too common, and it's too easy for dangerous people to get the weapons that help them perform mass executions like" those that took place in Connecticut.

She went on to blame everyone but the shooter.

"Leaders in Washington from both parties, and groups like the NRA, all say that now is not the time to talk about how gun safety laws can save lives in America," she said. "I agree, now is not the time to talk about gun laws - the time for that conversation was long before all those kids in Connecticut died today."

-- Rep. Chris Van Hollen said: "Today is a day for mourning and prayer, but we must immediately get to work to end these senseless, mass killings of innocent Americans. Together, we must act now to stop the carnage." Van Hollen has a record of supporting more gun control measures.

-- At a press conference the same day of the Newtown shootings, President Obama said "it is time to take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of politics," a statement that The Hill newspaper said was "an indication Obama could be prepared to confront gun control."
