Sen. Brown to Trump: ‘You Owe It’ to Gun Violence Victims to Act
After the weekend’s mass shooting in Texas, Sen. Sherrod Brown called on President Trump to take action on gun control, telling him, “You owe it to the millions of Americans whose lives were taken by gun violence.”
“The President and Congressional Republicans need to stop stigmatizing mental illness, need to stop taking orders from the NRA, need to break their addiction to gun lobby money and need start acting to keep people safe,” he said in Friday’s Democratic Weekly Address.
“All it takes, all it takes, is the political courage to do it. For every mass shooting that makes the headlines, there are so many other Americans whose lives are taken by gun violence who don’t get the same kind of attention. That has to end…” To Trump, Brown said, “You owe it to the millions of Americans whose lives were taken by gun violence, those millions of Americans who want you to listen and to do something.”
What Democrats want, short of repealing the 2nd Amendment, is to impose more laws that will do nothing but burden law-abiding gun owners.
