2Thompson1 2Thompson2WASHINGTON, D.C. – On June 22, Congressman Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS) joined the sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives. Democratic members planned to sit in the well of the House of Representatives until there is a vote on measures that will keep Americans safe from the dangers of gun violence. In the wake of the horrible recent attack in Orlando and as our nation sadly commemorates the one year anniversary of the Charleston shootings, Democrats recognize that enough is enough and common sense gun control measures must be taken, according to a statement from Thompson’s office.
