We have talked, tweeted, and delayed long enough. This is about who we are as a country, and what America will look like years from now. It’s time to reinstate the assault weapons ban and make background checks universal.

Here are some of the best things I’ve read this year.

Everyone should read this important piece by @RepJoeKennedy  - a powerful challenge to decide who we really are as Americans.

The world is closely watching the events in Hong Kong. I hope protestors’ right of peaceful assembly is met with dialogue, restraint, and respect.

Toni Morrison was a world-class human being. Her words stirred our souls & challenged our consciences to confront injustice, large or small, wherever it exists. How blessed we are that she gave us her gifts. Hillary and I are grateful for her life and the kindness she showed us.

How many more people have to die before we reinstate the assault weapons ban & the limit on high-capacity magazines & pass universal background checks? After they passed in 1994, there was a big drop in mass shooting deaths. When the ban expired, they rose again. We must act now.

I’ve read, enjoyed, and have learned a great deal from all of Andrea Camilleri’s Montalbano books. He was a wise and gifted writer. I wish I had known him. I will miss him, and Montalbano, very much.

Ross Perot was a unique figure in American business and politics who lived a full and fascinating life. My statement on his passing:

Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville 

Welcome to @Twitter , @POTUS ! One question: Does that username stay with the office? #askingforafriend 

Our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are in peril. They need our help now.

On this Father’s Day I’m thinking of the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. These children should not be a negotiating tool. And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.

The heartbreaking violence in Venezuela must stop. I stand with President , the National Assembly, and the people of as the #Venezuela  embrace their right to live in peace, choose their leaders, and decide their future, in harmony with their neighbors.

BREAKING: We just learned that the @ClintonCenter  has been bugged.

Twenty-four years ago, I signed the Federal Assault Weapons Ban into law. It, along with other policies, led to a 33-year low in the murder rate. We’ve done it before—we should do it again.

Walking away from Paris treaty is a mistake. Climate change is real. We owe our children more. Protecting our future also creates more jobs.
