"In the month since Las Vegas, Congress has done nothing to address gun safety. In the year and a half since Orlando, Congress has done nothing. In the two years since San Bernardino, Congress has done nothing. In the five years since Sandy Hook, Congress has again done nothing. Now we are facing yet another massacre of 26 people, including children, in a Sutherland Springs, Texas. No community should ever face this kind of tragedy, and yet this horror has become a regular occurrence in America. How many more unimaginable tragedies do Republicans in Congress need to witness before they are inspired to pass common-sense gun safety legislation and end this epidemic of senseless slaughter? The time is long, long past for us to put the lives of children and innocent Americans over the interests of the NRA’s corporate backers.
