Again and Again: Democrats Rally for Action on Guns on House Steps


Rep. Robin Kelly on America’s Gun Problem. After taking over the House floor after the slaughter of 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Florida, Democrats who are in the minority in the House find themselves rallying to wake Republicans to action yet again.

They do so to deaf ears. The GOP is currently under the control of the money of the NRA. Even though NRA members agree with common sense changes in U.S. gun laws, the NRA leadership continues to be zero sum in terms of being against any attempts to change gun laws.   

Only 477 days after 49 people were murdered at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla., the gun issue has come up again after the slaughter of 59 people in Las Vegas who were attending an outdoor country music concert. Only days after Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was shot on a baseball field, Republicans still remain silent on the gun issue.  

Yesterday, House Democrats gathered on the House steps.
