I Refuse to Let Up
When my colleagues and I sat down on the House floor, we stood up for millions of Americans that agree it’s time for commonsense legislative action to help prevent gun violence.
When the Republican leadership ignored that call and then canceled the rest of the work week, we took that message back to our districts.
At a roundtable in my district, I met with families broken by random acts of gun violence;
Mothers moved by mass shootings;
Advocates calling for change;
And regular people who just wanted to see less violence.
Their stories and their motivations were entirely different, but they all told me one thing: we’re with you.
