Swalwell on Calif. Shooting: The Days of Doing Nothing After Tragedies Like This Are Over

‘The American people spoke loud and clear that they want gun safety legislation to come before the Congress’

EXCERPT:

SWALWELL: “But I can tell the American people that the days of doing nothing after tragedies like this are over."
RUHLE: "Why?"
SWALWELL: "The American people spoke loud and clear that they want gun safety legislation to come before the Congress. It will come before the House. Whether that builds momentum in the Senate, we’ll see. But you'll remember after Parkland, Donald Trump convened Republicans and Democrats at the White House and he said, 'Why don’t you guys pass background checks?' Senator Feinstein looked at him like he was crazy because she knew that the Republicans would never bring that up. But now we're going to pass background checks and we're going to see if the President is serious and wants to do something about this."
