WASHINGTON, D.C. — Yesterday, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), along with 213 Members, sent a letter urging Senator McConnell to immediately call back the Senate and hold a vote on bipartisan gun violence prevention legislation.
The House has already passed both H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, and H.R. 1112, the Enhanced Background Checks Act in February. Senator McConnell has blocked both bills from a vote for more than 160 days.
“I made a promise to my community, and especially to people like Michelle Roberson, whose daughter was killed during a senseless road rage incident, to fight for commonsense gun legislation,” said Houlahan. “For too long, Congress has neglected its responsibility to protect Americans from the gun violence epidemic. It’s high time the Senate acts. Our country cannot wait any longer.”
