Allow an up-or-down vote!
Soon, thousands of victims of gun violence from Tucson, Aurora, Oak Creek, Newtown, and countless street corners in Chicago and around the country may finally get the vote they deserve.
But some of my Republican colleagues, including Senator Mitch McConnell, have other plans. They're teaming up to filibuster our sensible gun reform legislation, trying to block it from even reaching the Senate floor.
There is no legitimate reason for a senator to obstruct debate and a vote.
The only reason I can think of is these senators are afraid to stand up to the gun lobby and do the right thing for the American people.
Stand with me, and call on Republicans to allow an up-or-down vote on our anti-gun violence bill!
