A week after Democrats staged a nearly 26-hour sit-in on the House floor, they're taking their message to the people and holding dozens of events Wednesday throughout the country as part of a national day of action against gun violence.
"Tomorrow, listen to the stories of the families who have lost loved ones to gun violence," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement. "Listen to the heartbreak that ripples through a community with each gun death. We owe them more than thoughts and prayers and moments of silence. We owe them a vote in the House on commonsense, life-saving legislation that will prevent more families from experiencing their suffering."
