U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., released the following statement on the shooting at Taft Union High School in Taft, Calif., where a 16-year-old student opened fire with a 12-gauge shotgun, critically injuring a fellow student:

“Today comes word of another tragic shooting at an American school. I have visited this school over the years—in fact, my own father attended Taft Union.

“At this moment my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, and I wish them a speedy recovery.

“But how many more shootings must there be in America before we come to the realization that guns and grievances do not belong together?”
