"We simply must take meaningful steps to stop these shootings and stem the tide of gun violence in our communities. We are a nation awash in guns," she continued. 

Feinstein's comments come after a shooter opened fire at the YouTube campus, injuring four people.

San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said authorities found a deceased woman with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, whom they believe is the shooter.

The shooting comes over a month after 17 people were killed in a shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla., reigniting debate over the nation's gun laws.
