Sherrod Brown on Sunday called on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to call lawmakers back to Washington, D.C., to pass new gun control legislation after mass shootings over the weekend in Texas and OH left at least 29 people dead and dozens of others injured. Popp's emailed statement said the 77-year-old McConnell is working from home in Louisville and "will continue to work from home" for now.

"This afternoon he contacted Senators Cornyn and Portman to express his deepest sympathies for the people of El Paso and Dayton and discuss the senseless tragedies of this weekend", Popp said.

The first of the two shootings occurred Saturday afternoon when a gunman opened fire at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, leaving 20 people dead and 26 injured.

Two mass shootings where more than 30 people were killed sandwiched the posting, which was taken at Fancy Farm, Ky., where the Kentucky senator had a campaign rally.

McConnell tripped on his outside patio Sunday morning.

McConnell called the weekend shootings "terrible" on Twitter, but he has not responded to the calls for him to bring the Senate back to Washington from its August recess.

McConnell tweeted Saturday that 'The entire nation is horrified by today's senseless violence in El Paso, ' adding that he and his wife's 'prayers go out to the victims of this bad violence, their families and friends, and the fearless first responders who charged into harm's way'.

McConnell had been at the annual Fancy Farm political event in Western Kentucky on Saturday.
