( - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) sent out a Tweet on Sunday reacting to the mass shooting in Odessa, Texas, saying that America has “let mass murder become the new normal.”

On Tuesday she sent out another Tweet saying that the “real causes” of what she called the “gun violence epidemic” in the United States included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, weak gun laws, “white supremacy,” and the National Rifle Association.

“This country has let mass murder become the new normal,” Omar said in her Tweet on Sunday.

“The House has passed comprehensive gun legislation,” she said.

“It’s time for @senatemajldr to take up legislation in the Senate immediately—before more people lose their lives,” she said.

In her Tweet on Tuesday, Omar said:

“Trump keeps blaming the gun violence epidemic on mental illness. Here are the real causes:

“--@senatemajldr, who blocks gun bills from the Senate.

“--Weak state gun laws—Texas expanded gun access just one day after this weekend’s mass shooting.

“--White supremacy.

“--The @NRA.”
