Sen. Rockefeller Issues Statement on Gun Control
Another West Virginia Senatory is speaking out about gun violence. A day after Sen. Joe Manchin said it was time for an honest conversation about gun restrictions, U.S. Sen, Jay Rockefeller issued a statement calling on Congress to immediately act to protect children and families from gun violence. In the statement, Sen. Rockefeller said making sure children and families are safe each and every day should be our top priority. About the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings, he said, "Friday’s unspeakable actions are another stark wakeup call that we must do more. This is not the time for soft words and empty promises, but a call for strong action.
