Eleven days ago: A shooting at a Tops Friendly Markets store targeting the Black community.
Two days ago: A shooting at Robb Elementary School targeting children.
Every day, our country loses people to gun violence.
What else is there to say?
Words aren’t enough; we must act.
We must create laws that stop these preventable deaths.
This is a workplace issue. This is a school issue. This is a community issue.
That makes it a labor issue. And we must act.
These mass shootings are a stark reminder of why the Senate must stop hiding behind arcane procedures to avoid preventing gun violence and take action.
Because working people deserve safe workplaces without fear of a mass shooting. And America’s children deserve to learn and thrive in safe schools.
