Connecticut Democrats Take Senate Floor To Demand Action On Gun Violence

During his remarks, Northam said, "We as a society need to stand up and say it is time to take action against gun violence".

Instead, Ryan and other GOP leaders urged prayers to unify the country and said a positive way to respond to the shooting is to donate blood.

Steve Bannon, Trump's former chief strategist and campaign manager, said a firearms pivot from Trump would be "impossible".

Too soon, the Kentucky Republican said.

Not for me - not anymore. Because when guns are available to anyone, anywhere, our families are unsafe everywhere. As a result, gun stocks have mostly been lower since the election.

Proponents say the current patchwork is too confusing and want concealed carry permits to work like drivers licenses, where every state recognizes every other's. That's why 93 Americans are killed with guns every day.

In a March letter to Congress opposing the Hearing Protection Act, the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence wrote, "The widespread and uncontrolled distribution of silencers to an unwary civilian population, combined with the sheer number of firearms freely available in America is a step in the wrong direction and will result in tragedy, including violence directed at police officers that will be hard or impossible to investigate effectively".

And you can forget your gun control debate on September 13th, since there were four mass shootings, in Washington, Tennessee, and two in Pennsylvania.

On the campaign trail past year, Trump aligned himself with gun rights advocates who consider the US Constitution's second amendment right to bear arms sacrosanct. "At the end of the day, machine guns are easy to make".

Our volunteers fight - and we win.

Senator Chris Murphy talks with Rachel Maddow about resistance in Congress to doing anything to prevent any future gun massacre in the United States and where he sees the possibility of progress on gun restriction legislation. We maybe wonder what's wrong with our country. He gave the example of a measure that's now before the U.S. House that would make it easier to obtain gun silencers. It's no surprise, then, that numerous nation's top law enforcement organizations oppose efforts to roll back silencer safety laws.

This president, who was born with all the accoutrements of wealth, prides himself on being able to connect with working-class, churchgoing Americans who also own guns.

A separate bill on concealed carry reciprocity has yet to be taken up by the House Judiciary Committee, but it already has 212 co-sponsors, putting it easily within reach of the 218 votes necessary for a majority.

Republicans have been upbeat about prospects for legislation as they control both the House and Senate and have an ally in the White House in President Donald Trump. Or will we demand safety in our daily lives - at church, school, concerts and movie theaters?

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has pleaded Congress to pass legislation to prevent similar incidents. For Congress, that means demanding they reject National Rifle Association leaders' radical and deadly agenda. Certainly this march would show elected officials they had to act.

This is the second time a major episode of gun violence had ripple effects on the Virginia governor's race, the nation's marquee statewide election this year. "We have to act". We can't be silent anymore.

The obstacle is American gun culture. She lives in Colorado.
