CBC Chairman G. K. Butter­field (NC-01) and members of the CBC recently joined Democratic Leadership and their colleagues to stage a sit-in on the House Floor demanding House Republican Leadership immediately take up a vote on legislation that addresses gun violence in America.


“Today is a historic day in the history of our country as members of the Congressional Black Caucus participate in a sit-in on the House Floor to demand legislative action on gun violence.  Congress can no longer simply hold moments of silence for the victims of gun violence.  We must act, and we will not leave the House Floor or Washington, D.C. without taking action to prevent the next tragedy.  We are proud to stand with our esteemed colleague, Congressman John Lewis, and we stand united in our demand for immediate action on common sense gun legislation!”
