If our nation can institute some of the common sense gun safety laws Connecticut has that other states don’t, like requiring a license for any gun purchase, we can make things a little bit safer for everyone.

I am completely broken today but also firm in my resolve to continue to work to end our nation's gun violence epidemic. Thankfully we have @GovNedLamont, a legislature and fierce advocates in CT to join me in this work.

What the hell is it going to take to break the NRA’s grip around the United States Senate? Don’t tell me ordinary citizens need access to an AR-15 or any other military grade weapon. If you use the 2nd amendment as an excuse, you are complicit in the murders of our children.

These kinds of mass shootings rarely happen elsewhere in the world. Why are we willing to live with this carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone to have the courage to deal with it? It’s time to turn this pain into action.

One life taken by gun violence is too many, but 15 innocent lives, including 14 children, is an utter tragedy. My full statement on the Uvalde, TX elementary school shooting.
