In response to more than 20 Democratic members of the Senate gathering on the east steps of the United States Capitol today to call for action to prevent gun violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the nation’s largest gun violence prevention organization including Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the Everytown Survivor Network and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, released the following statement from President John Feinblatt:
“After a summer of gun violence and again after the tragic school shooting in Oregon last week, we said we would do whatever it takes to ask our political leaders — from the White House to Congress to statehouses across the country — to take action to prevent the gun violence that kills 88 Americans and injures hundreds more every day. We applaud Senator Schumer and the more than 20 United States Senators who gathered today to speak out on what they will do to close the loopholes that make it easy for dangerous people to get guns in our country. We are going to keep calling on all levels of government to take action to prevent gun violence.”
