U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) released the following statement on the threat by Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) to filibuster legislation to reduce gun violence:

"It's an outrage that a small group of Senate Republicans want to stop us from even debating how we address the epidemic of gun violence in this country that claims the lives of more than 31,000 people each year. While a strong majority of Americans support common-sense gun safety measures, these Republicans would rather placate the leaders of the gun lobby than allow a vote on legislation to protect families and children in our communities."
