Rep. John Lewis Again Takes The Floor Against Gun Violence

An impassioned speech from today.

It's been quite a week for John Lewis.

Part Three of his graphic novel, March, has been shortlisted for a National Book Award.

His fifteen-year fight to see the creation of a National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington is now realized.

And he's back in the well of the House of Representatives, calling his colleagues to join him, as he continues the push for a vote on anti-gun violence legislation.

He had to shrug his shoulders when the House Speaker suggested he be "punished" for his summer Sit-In on the House Floor two months ago. Because really? Nancy Pelosi has the right answer: "Bring it on."
