Here's the word from Congressman Cleaver:
"In the United States, there have been more mass shootings than days marked off the calendar in 2019. There is no time to wait. The Senate should immediately head back to Washington and pass the bipartisan, sensible gun measures the House passed months ago."
And from Rep. Sharice Davids:
"It’s been 161 days since the House passed H.R. 8, a bipartisan, common sense bill to institute universal background checks on gun purchases.
"And it's been 161 days of no action from Mitch McConnell. 161 days of more lives being cut short by gun violence.
