At a capitol press conference Thursday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal promised there will be another vote on gun control in the Senate — one where he said gun control advocates will win a bipartisan victory. He was joined by Newtown families, other members of the Congressional delegation as well as House and Senate leaders.
“Our cause is unstoppable,” Blumenthal said.
“We are never going to give up,” U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy added. He also said his colleagues who won’t meet with Newtown families ought to “have the guts” to speak with them.
U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Esty was more blunt. “Inexplicable cowardice” is stopping an up-or-down vote on gun control in Congress, she said.
