On Sept. 25, Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus Rep. Katherine Clark joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Lewis and other congressional leaders to demand the U.S. Senate take a vote on gun safety reform legislation.
The House Democrats passed two common sense gun reform bills in February, and for over 200 days the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has refused to put them on the floor for a vote.
“It has been over 200 days since the House passed gun safety legislation supported by over 90% of the American people” said Clark. “There is a unified voice in this country calling for action to protect our communities. They deserve action. We’ve done our job, and it’s time for Sen. McConnell to do his.”
Clark provided remarks as part of the National #EndGunViolence Rally, which was organized by activists, gun violence survivors and faith leaders who traveled from across the country to compel action on commonsense gun violence prevention legislation.
