“Our heart is breaking for these families. Every ounce of love and thoughts and prayers we can send, we are sending, but I’m here on this floor to beg to literally get down on my hands and knees and beg my colleagues. Find a path forward here. Work with us to find a way to pass laws that make this less likely.”
