James Mackler (TN-Sen), "McConnell needs to DO SOMETHING"

As the number of fatal mass shootings in our country grows, there’s no denying this is an issue that can’t be ignored.

Odessa and Midland, Texas are the latest communities to join so many others across the country that have been struck with grief in the wake of shootings that have taken the lives of neighbors and friends, parents and children.

When families are killed while at the grocery store or children are killed at school, the tragedy is so great that it can feel unspeakable. But we can’t remain silent. We can’t sit by and do nothing.

Gun violence is a solvable issue.

I’m a veteran and a gun owner and I know we can protect Americans’ Second Amendment rights and keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. We need stronger background checks on all gun sales and close the gun-show loophole. The House passed a bipartisan bill to do so way back in February, but McConnell has refused to call a vote in the Senate. Charles: McConnell is refusing to do his job.

We can’t make progress on anything with McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.
