This week I called both Sens. Bill Nelson (D) and Marco Rubio (R), urging them to support the Manchin-Toomey gun safety amendment. I also called Sen. Nelson after the vote to thank him for his support. Alas, Sen. Rubio joined 41 Republicans in sustaining the filibuster that blocked the amendment. This setback was not the end of our work for sensible gun safety laws. It was only the beginning of that struggle.
