“If we’re going to address the gun violence epidemic in our country, we need to take back the Senate in 2020,” Warren wrote in an email to supporters. 

“I’ll fight my heart out to make sure Democrats win up and down the ballot in 2020 — but if we’re going to beat Republicans and the gun lobby, it’s going to take a grassroots movement,” she continued.

The email follows the deadly mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, which took place less than 24 hours apart over the weekend. 

President Trump suggested on Monday connecting stricter background checks on gun buyers to immigration reform legislation.

Warren said it was “inexcusable” that the House legislation on universal background checks has not been put up for a vote in the Senate. 

“During the last election, we flipped the House. And in February, the Democratic-led House passed bipartisan legislation that would make a meaningful impact on this crisis,” Warren said. “But five months after passing the House, and more than six and a half years after Sandy Hook, that bill is still sitting on Mitch McConnell’s desk. It’s inexcusable.”
