Addressing the gathering of advocates from groups including Indivisible and Moms Demand Action, Blumenauer spoke about gun safety in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, which together killed 31 people this weekend.

He asked the crowd to help "turn up the heat" on McConnell and other senators who have held back two gun safety bills which the House passed, one requiring background checks on private firearm sales and the other that extends the background check review period from three to 10 days.
