Congressman Himes On Senate Vote

“I am outraged that the Senate failed to pass this commonsense legislation. With more than 90% of Americans supporting background checks, it is simply unfathomable that this obvious legislation did not garner the needed votes to pass the Senate and move onto the House of Representatives. The victims of Newtown – and the over 3,000 people who have been killed by gun violence since then – deserve better than that.

“If you cannot pass a background check, you should not own a gun. I am bitterly disappointed in this Congress’ inability to pass commonsense gun violence prevention legislation, but I remain determined to work with my colleagues to ensure safer schools and communities for our children.”
