In the aftermath of yet another record-breaking gun massacre, Disney CEO Bob Iger says he's had enough.

Speaking at this week's Vanity Fair Establishment Summit in Beverly Hills, the usually restrained Iger said "we should demand a dialogue about this from our politicians," reports The HollyWood Reporter.

Referring to the string of mass shootings including Pulse, Newtown and now Las Vegas, Iger said, "This is a huge crisis for our country … it's been a trying time not just for us, but for so many people."

Among the 58 dead and more than 500 wounded were several Disney employees. Carrie Barnette, who Iger on Twitter called "a wonderful member of the Disney family" was killed, and two others sustained injuries from the attack.

In total, more than 70 Disney employees attended the Las Vegas Harvest country music festival, which on Sunday became the site of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
