Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts tried working herself up at Wednesday’s gun control rally outside the White House but couldn’t manage to find her stride despite being filmed by MSNBC.
Warren was asked what was going through her mind, and she immediately blamed the National Rifle Association (NRA) for a lack of gun control reform.
“The NRA has held Congress hostage for years now,” Warren said. “These young people have shown up to spring us free, to say you’re not here to do the work of the gun lobby. You’re here to do the work of the American people. And I believe they will lead us. They are making a huge difference in our democracy.”
When Warren was asked what would be different about this latest gun control push, her voice suddenly became high and began to crack.
“This time it’s the young people,” she whimpered. “Whose lives are on the line. Whose futures are on the line. And that’s the point they bring home every minute. That it’s their friends, it’s themselves who are at risk. And, boy, they drive that in an up close and personal way that nobody else does.”
