Himes Statement on President’s Remarks on Gun Violence Prevention…..What are YOUR thoughts?
“I stand with the President in urging my colleagues in Congress to come together and pass legislation that will prevent the next Newtown. Over 100 days after 26 innocent lives were cut tragically short, it is long past time for Congress to act. Nobody should be able to purchase a gun if they are a criminal or mentally ill. No civilian needs a military-style gun with a magazine that holds 30 bullets. No parent should have to fear for their child’s safety while he or she is at school. I remain frustrated that the House Majority has yet to bring up a single gun violence prevention measure for a vote, but I am hopeful that the brave action of Republicans and Democrats here in Connecticut and the calls of the President and the public alike will finally encourage my colleagues to do what we were sent here to do.”
