It's shameful the NRA is rejecting bipartisan calls to pass reasonable gun safety laws. Instead, they are attacking anyone with the courage to stand up to them. We can't give in or be silent. Let’s keep fighting until our kids and our communities are safe from gun violence.

Republicans are ignoring bipartisan calls to address gun violence this week and instead will try to gut rules on Wall Street. We have to make our voices heard so that we can reset the priorities in Washington.

So many incredible young voices have stepped up to demand action on gun violence, yet the NRA continues to reject bipartisan calls to pass reasonable gun safety laws. Let’s stand up to the gun lobby *this* week and get something meaningful done on this epidemic.
