STANCES ON GUNS LOOM AS VOTING ISSUE IN NOVEMBER, MARKEY SAYS

By Matt Murphy
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, MARCH 12, 2018....Despite what he called a "vise-like grip" that the National Rifle Association has on Congress, U.S. Sen. Edward Markey warned Monday that lawmakers would be punished this November if Congress fails to address gun safety in the wake of the Florida high school shooting.

Markey, who appeared with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and a host of law enforcement officials to detail his latest gun safety bill at Boston Police headquarters, said he believes the "children's crusade" he has seen percolating across the country will spur his colleagues to act.

Students in districts around Massachusetts are planning to join teens from around the country in a 17-minute walkout from school on Wednesday morning to honor those killed at Marjory Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
