What have we done for them?

Today marks one year since seventeen members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School community were gunned down.

Even in the wake of Parkland, even though more than 40,000 Americans died from gun violence last year, even though guns are the second-leading cause of death for children and teens — Congress has not passed any common-sense gun reform policies in the last 25 years.

In the wake of each tragedy, communities turn to lawmakers asking for reform. The student survivors at Marjory Stoneman Douglas should never have had this burden placed on them — yet they have become the ubiquitous examples of advocates.

Americans shouldn't have to live in fear of school shootings or continue to raise hell for basic public safety reforms.

The kids in these communities are leading the fight. In the last 365 days, what has Congress done for them?

Many have rallied, marched, or stood with the survivors. But "thoughts and prayers" are ineffective policy tools. Real change is long overdue.

I'm working in Congress on bipartisan legislation to implement universal background checks. Help me call on my colleagues in Congress to demand the passage of universal background checks.

Not one more.
