Congressman David Cicilline
The new gun violence task force vice chair is currently serving his third term representing Rhode Island’s First Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
David believes that one of the most important provisions of our Constitution is the guarantee to all citizens of “equal protection of the law.” Through nearly two and one-half centuries these words have guided our nation and made our society even more free and just. David strongly believes that all people, regardless of sexual orientation, should have full access to equal rights, and he will continue working hard in Congress to guarantee equal protection of the law for everyone, regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation or other criteria.
Earlier this year, David co-signed a letter to the House Committee on Appropriations requesting that they provide $327 million in Fiscal Year 2012 to fund Title X family planning programs, which provides more than 5 million Americans with preventive health care services such as breast cancer screenings, HIV tests, contraceptives, and family planning services
The Republican leadership in Congress has adjourned for seven weeks without addressing this horrific epidemic of gun violence.
Two bipartisan bills Cicilline wants voted on – No Fly, No Buy and universal background checks.
If you’re too dangerous to fly, you’re too dangerous to buy a gun.
It is particularly important to close the terror gap, given that use of firearms by terrorists is on the rise on American soil. According to a study conducted by Indiana State University in 2014, while explosives were the most common weapon for terrorists carrying out attacks on American soil prior to 9/11, they have increasingly started using guns instead.
