House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brought out all of our favorite figures in the civilian disarmament community yesterday to roll out the Democrats’ effort to outlaw private gun sales in the United States.
(When Gabby Giffords was shot) violence shattered lives in Arizona and tragedy pierced America’s heart. We are blessed to be with survivors of so many other acts of gun violence today. But today is also a day of action.
We say enough is enough by finally bringing common sense bi-partisan background check legislation to the floor of the House. Isn’t that exciting? The gun violence crisis is, as I said, an epidemic that requires the energy and engagement of our entire nation.
– House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announcing the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019
Details of the bill have yet to be released.
