Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Facebook: 7,000 Shoes at the U.S. Capitol

March 13, 2018
Press Release

"7,000 shoes are lined along the U.S. Capitol today representing every child lost due to gun violence since the 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, CT. We cannot wait for another tragedy for Congress to take action. It’s time to put politics aside, and pass common sense gun safety legislation that is already supported by both Republicans and Democrats, and the majority of Americans - like closing the gun show and online loopholes, banning military-style assault weapons and bump stocks, and requiring background checks on anyone seeking to purchase a gun. These are actions that Congress can and should take right now. More info: http://abcnews.go.com/US/7000-childrens-shoes-laid-capitol-lawn-honor-lives/story?id=53710394"-TG
