Madison – U.S. Rep.

Last week, the Democratic #NoBillNoBreak Sit-In on the Floor of the U.S. House of Representatives showed that Republican Leadership can no longer ignore the epidemic of gun violence. Wednesday marks a National Day of Action on gun violence prevention, as Democratic Members of Congress from across the county will take the fight for commonsense gun safety to the streets.
