We’re only 151 days into 2019 and there have already been 150 mass shootings. This reality is horrifying. It’s heartbreaking. And the fact that our nation’s leaders continue to fail to protect us should fuel outrage in every American. #VirginiaBeach
The stories of survivors from Virginia Beach touch on a familiar refrain: a workday shattered by gunfire. Coworkers huddled on the floor trying to stay quiet as the shooting gets closer. The disbelief that it’s finally happening to them. Our hearts are in Virginia tonight.
If gun violence feels like an everyday occurrence, that’s because it is. Every single day, nearly 100 lives are lost because of guns. This is not normal. No other developed nation in the world experiences this kind of daily heartbreak and horror. #VirginiaBeach
We are a country of citizens crying out for a response to this epidemic of gun violence, but there are politicians who take the gun lobby’s money and vote against our safety. Our leaders must work and vote to protect us. And if they don’t we must elect new leaders. #VirginiaBeach
It’s been nearly 100 days since the House passed the Bipartisan Background Checks Act. How many more lives will be lost before Senator McConnell and President Trump take the next steps to sign that lifesaving legislation into law? giffords.me/85044
