3/8 OP-ED: GUN CONTROL
It’s Long Past Time to Act on Gun Control
"If Congress treated every issue as they have gun control, nothing would ever get done. There would be no health care reform, no road systems, no education, and the federal government would shut down...

Instead of doing all we can to strengthen the ADA, this bill takes us in the opposite direction.
Rep. Capuano on Parkland Shooting
"It’s impossible to offer soothing words today that come close to expressing the anger and sorrow I feel after another school massacre. What will it take for Republicans in Congress to tighten gun laws? All we ask is for a floor vote. How many more lives have to be lost?"
