Via Politics USA:
House Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) demanded a vote on gun violence legislation after the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
Manu Raju of CNN quoted Pelosi as saying:
Pelosi calls for vote on gun legislation. “Congress must show as much courage as they have, and act now to ensure that no other community or family must endure the unthinkable horror of gun violence. Our children deserve real leadership: a vote to prevent gun violence now.”
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas:
“It is disturbing and unsettling that we are bearing witness to yet another school shooting with multiple fatalities reported. Until Republicans in Congress stop blocking meaningful action on gun violence and instead work together to enact commonsense background check laws and ban the most deadly assault weapons, none of us can truly expect this carnage to lessen. That is a sad and heartbreaking fact we continue to live with in this country, one we should not have to live with. I pray again today, as I have too many times in the past, for the families of the victims, for the survivors, and for the courageous first-responders now at the scene.”
