National Rifle Association strongly opposes my bill, H.R.224. The bill would require U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy to submit an annual report to Congress on "the effects of gun violence on public health," and the status of actions taken to address those effects. This bill is "common sense." Please stand with me against the #NRA. #GunSense
