Terry McAuliffe: 'We Lose 93 Million Americans a Day to Gun Violence'

The House has canceled all votes on legislation for the day and a number of hearings have been delayed.

Democrats ramped up their pro-gun control push, staging a filibuster in the Senate and a "sit-in" in the House to disrupt Republican-controlled proceedings.

It's unlikely the attack on the Republican team was a chance encounter - the practice began in the early morning, before daily business on Capitol Hill gets underway. It was the fact that the victims included members of Congress and their aides, of course, that has driven the news coverage. "We are about this every day for all of our citizens". Sick as it is to admit, a gunman attacking a soft target-a movie theater, an elementary school, a nightclub, and now a baseball practice-is Wednesday in America.

As gun control advocates eyed the challenging political reality, the powerful National Rifle Association made clear it was not backing off.

"There shouldn't be one standard for members of Congress and another for citizens who otherwise have the same right to self-defense", he said. They must use this tragedy to defang the NRA and take a smarter look at our nation's ridiculous gun laws.

Garrett, who has received threats this year, said it was not only lawmakers who deserved the right to protect themselves. "Those policies have failed where they have been implemented". "On a rare occasion I'd have my gun in a glove box but it's going to be in my pocket from this day forward".

Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., argued that tougher gun laws aren't the answer.

The FBI has also declined to confirm any information on the type of weapons used or how Mr Hodgkinson may have obtained any weapon.

First, it's unclear if the suspect - 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson of IL whom President Trump said has died from his injuries - obtained or was carrying the gun legally. Officers shot the gunman, who later died. Gov. McAuliffe, a known anti-gun zealot, chose to push for gun control at an inappropriate time with falsehoods.

"If you are taking away their guns, you are taking away their only protection", Scalise told the New Orleans Times-Picayune as the bill was under debate.

"This shooting is an attack on all who serve and on all who participate in our democracy", said former Rep. Members of Congress, and the residents of my city, would do well to take that lesson from this intrusion on their quiet peace. The figure was calculated by the Gun Violence Archive which was founded as a non-profit in 2013 with the intention of building on work tracking gun violence started by the liberal political magazine Slate.

They're pushing ahead in a harsh environment.

"The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end". He chased them around the fenced-in area where they run free and stopped to pet retrievers and terriers who crossed his path. Trump quickly signed it.

Virginia is historically a fairly gun-friendly state, and although Democratic Gov.
