House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Friday that she will bring a fourth-grade girl from Newtown, CT to be her guest at the coming State of the Union Address.
The mother of the fourth-grader will also attend.
This particular child is not a student from Sandy Hook Elementary, but Pelosi chose her because of a letter she wrote asking government officials to “ban semi-automatic weapons.”
What everyone in Newtown wants, is for you to ban semi-automatic weapons and large capacity magazines and to make everyone get gun safes. This is important so that a person cannot shoot many at once, and/or injure people badly. This ban will prevent individuals, families, and communities from suffering the way we have in Newtown.
Pelosi is currently pushing 14 gun control measures introduced to the House of Representatives by Democrat lawmakers. She remarked that Democrats have a “small window of time” to get their legislation through the House.
President Obama’s State of the Union Address is scheduled for Tuesday night.
