Grieving relatives and steadfast advocates for common sense gun laws gathered in Capitol Square yesterday, in order to commemorate lost relatives and reaffirm their commitment to the cause.
As our new Congressman Donald McEachin put it, "A moment of silence never saved anyone." The corollary is that a prolonged outcry can. I will continue to support legislation which keeps guns out of the hands of those who shouldn't have them, but Republicans in Virginia don't like to hear this message.
We need to continue to make this issue visible. So let's get to work!
