Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said members of the House of Representatives would have to start “flooding” the Senate in order to get gun control measures passed.
“I don’t know what else it takes but I don’t believe we can stop at the door of the United States House. I believe there will have to be an emergence of members of the House flooding the United States Senate for Senator McConnell to understand that these initiatives today, my gun storage bill, my bill that I’ve introduced dealing with the caliber weapon, I’ve held an AR-15 in my hand, I wish I had it. It is as heavy as 10 boxes that you might be moving and the bullet that is utilized, a 50 caliber, these kinds of bullets, need to be licensed and do not need to be on the street,” she said recently on Capitol Hill.
