WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, Congressman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (VA-03) will join other members of the House Democratic Gun Violence Prevention Task Force for a meeting with the President at the White House to discuss the Administration’s plans to reduce gun violence. Congressman Scott, a vice chair of the House Democratic Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, issued the following statement ahead of Monday afternoon’s meeting with the President: “Washington has a moral obligation to do something to address our nation’s gun violence epidemic. With the current leadership in Congress paralyzed to even consider bipartisan, evidence-based legislation to curb gun violence and close loopholes in the law, I am interested in learning more about the President’s proposed executive actions to address this issue and offering my own suggestions.
