Congresswoman Speier (D-CA) took to the floor of the House on Feb. 13 to call out the NRA leadership for weakening our gun safety laws. Here, she concludes the discussion with a To-Do List for Congress and a call to action:

Pass the universal background check
Pass the assault weapons ban
Cut down on drug trafficking
Remove the gag order on gun safety research
Keep illegal and unwanted guns off the streets
Invest in gun safety technology r&d
Close the holes in our mental health system and take steps to enhance safety.

Someone said: "Too many children are dying, too many children. We must do something. It will be hard, but the time is now. You must act. Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you."

The words of our own Gabby Giffords in the senate just a couple weeks ago. It still sends shivers up and down my spine. Gabby almost lost her life. We owe it to Gabby. We owe it to the 26 people who lost their lives in Newtown, the countless others that lost their lives in Aurora and Columbine and the 32 people each and every day in this country that lose their lives to gun violence. We owe it to the American people.
