“Both Democrats and Republicans die from gun violence. Bullets don't discriminate and neither should our legislators,” David Hogg said.
A new bill will be introduced on Tuesday and will mark eight years since the shooting that wounded Gabby Giffords and left six other people dead. The bill will also issue background checks on those who attempt to purchase firearms online or at gun shows with exceptions for law enforcement, ABC News reported.
