We all have a responsibility to reject these cowardly acts of anti-Semitism. When it comes down to it, New Yorkers will always rise above hate and bigotry.

Aurora. Sandy Hook. Charleston. Orlando. Las Vegas. Sutherland Springs, TX. After each of these communities were devastated by horrific acts of gun violence, what happened in Congress? Nothing. Enough is enough. Congress must act now.

The NRA and the gun industry just want to protect their profits—it is all about money and greed. They want to keep selling weapons of war to anyone willing to pay, no matter how unsafe it makes the rest of us. It has nothing to do with protecting the Second Amendment.

These reports are disturbing. USA Swimming should have taken action, but it appears they did nothing. We need a special committee, as called for by my colleagues and , to investigate these failures.

Public servants have a moral imperative to help those in need. After passing $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, the president wants to cut heating assistance for low income families & seniors. That's an abysmal failure of leadership.

In the wake of unspeakable tragedy, students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS are speaking truth to power. It shouldn’t be left to these amazing kids to call on adults to do the right thing. Let’s join them on March 24 to advocate, organize, & then vote for commonsense gun laws.

It’s not “too soon” to talk about solutions to end gun violence in this country. I reject that notion. The time to talk about them is now—today, tomorrow, and every day after, until we confront this epidemic.

After the horrific mass shooting in Texas last November, I spoke on the Senate Floor about our moral obligation to act on gun violence. Nothing has changed since then. It's completely shameful. When will enough be enough for Congress to act?

Heartbreaking and horrific images from yet another school shooting, this time in Parkland, FL. ​Thinking of the victims and their families, and grateful to the first responders on the scene. When will enough be enough for Congress to finally take gun violence seriously?
