|Dean of the U.S .House|
John Conyers, Jr.
"On numerous occasions in the past, after assaults on our people by those who reject our values and seek to break our spirit, we have come together to console each other, hold the attackers accountable, and reduce our vulnerability to future attacks. Make no mistake about it: our Nation is under attack. We are under attack by the scourge of gun violence—on our streets and in our homes, on a daily basis. All too often, these attacks take the form of a mass shooting. Included in these attacks are hate crimes and incidents of domestic terrorism. Congress needs to act. Our Committee needs to act now." said Conyers.
