“I am profoundly disappointed that House Republicans would vote against this rule,” said Delegate Murphy. “In these challenging times of prolific gun violence, it is reasonable to try to protect ourselves and our guests, including the many student groups who come to watch us on the floor during the legislative session.”
House Republicans last week killed several pieces of gun safety legislation, including bills to ban bumpstocks and ensure background checks. House Democrats will hold a press conference to discuss gun safety tomorrow, Jan. 30, at 10 a.m. in House Room 2 in the Capitol. A media advisory will follow today.
