US Senator Mitch McConnell has called on Congress to combat gun violence that has seen dozens of people killed and injured in Texas, Ohio and California over the past few days.

“There is no place for hatred in our country,” McConnell said, pledging to reporters in New Jersey to deal with the gun violence, adding that he had spoken to the Attorney General, FBI Director and some members of Congress and would issue a statement Monday morning in this regard.

Trump described the perpetrators of mass shootings as “mentally unstable”, adding that this problem has existed for years and years and should stop.

The attacks on Texas and Ohio over Saturday and Sunday have left about 29 dead, as well as scores of injured.

The US Congress with its two houses, the House of Representatives and the Senate, has been suspended since August 3 to last for five weeks until it is reconvened on September 9.
