building community, advancing equity
Speaker Paul Ryan shut off the cameras so you can't watch, but American hero John Lewis and Congresswoman Katherine Clark are leading a sit-in on the floor of the House for a vote on gun violence legislation. There is nowhere I'd rather spend my birthday than sitting by their side, in solidarity with the entire Massachusetts delegation. The House Republicans may think they can run from a vote for common-sense gun measures, but they can’t hide.
The availability of assault weapons is a public emergency and security crisis. Republicans are too deep in the grip of the NRA, but Democrats have the power to force this issue and make it their absolute top priority. Now is the time to do exactly that.
