Here's an emergency:

Today marks the anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17, wounded 17 more, and broke the hearts of millions – again.

In the days that followed, it looked like the Parkland shooting would be different. The surviving students, with awesome courage, stepped up to finally force our country to talk about gun safety. More than one million people turned out for The March for Our Lives. And the extreme right stooped ever lower, attacking kids in excruciatingly personal terms – all for the sin of not wanting to be shot.

While the aftermath of Parkland and its brave survivors moved the national conversation forward, it's one year later, and the Senate has yet to take meaningful action on gun safety.

That's unacceptable.

Students in Parkland and across America are counting on Congress to keep them safe. They don't want thoughts and prayers, they want and deserve action.

Today, and every day, I stand committed in the fight for commonsense reforms that will help end the gun violence epidemic that grips our nation.
