Larson Greets Team 26 Cyclists, Calls for a Vote on Common Sense Gun Legislation
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) along with U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), the Connecticut House delegation, and congressional gun violence prevention leaders held a press conference with Team 26 to call on Congress to take action and pass commonsense legislation to prevent gun violence.
“I thank Monte Frank and the other members of Team 26 for continuing to show Congress their resolve by making their annual journey to Washington until action is taken on common sense gun safety measures. The horrific tragedy of Sandy Hook should have incited an immediate response from Congress, but sadly Congress remains complicit in the epidemic of gun violence in America. We need to put partisanship aside and take up a vote or continue to remain complicit,” said Larson.
