Republican congresswoman: Many mass murderers are Democrats

A Republican congresswoman from upstate New York says “many” people who commit mass murder are Democrats. U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney made the comment Wednesday on Talk 1300 Radio during a discussion about calls for stricter gun control since last week’s deadly Florida high school shooting but offered no evidence to back up her assertion. Democratic state Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is opposing Tenney this fall and calls her comments “disgusting” and “toxic.”
