SAN BERNARDINO: DFA says Republicans must “stop standing with terrorists, pass gun reform now”
Here's a statement from Democracy for America's Charles Chamberlain reacting to the ongoing tragedy in California:
"The tragic situation in San Bernardino is still going on, but even as it continues to unfold we need to make something very, very clear: This is terrorism.
"Whether you get your marching orders from an established terrorist organization or are simply a twisted individual intent on causing the terror of innocent people, you're a terrorist.
"And when Paul Ryan and the entire Republican party, refuse to stand up to the NRA and the gun industry and pass common sense gun reforms, they are aiding and abetting those terrorists. Period.
"In the wake of yet another tragedy, Republicans need to decide: Are you going to stand with the American people and pass common sense gun reform? Or are you going to continue to side with the terrorists who perpetrate these crimes and the merchants of death in the gun industry who make it easier for them to do it?
"Republicans need to stop standing with terrorists and they need to help all of us pass common sense gun reforms. Now." -- Charles Chamberlain, Executive Director, Democracy for America
