Big push for gun control by Democrats


Under the "campaign" portion of the Daily Kos website you can find the above screen.

From Politico we get this story:

A member of the House Democratic leadership issued a forceful statement Saturday calling on Congress to vote on key gun-control laws  in light of the Connecticut elementary school shooting that left 20 children dead. 
Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.), the outgoing chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said lawmakers should vote soon on banning assault weapons and high-capacity clips, closing terrorist watch list loopholes, and instituting background checks for gun sales. 
"To do nothing in the face of continuous assaults on our children is to be complicit in those assaults," Larson said in response to the shootings in his home state. "There may not be a single cure-all for the violence in our nation, however we must start the process and begin the deeper and longer conversations that need to take place.  Politics be damned." . . .
