Cicilline lashes out against NRA ad

Jan 21, 2013

(PROVIDENCE, RI) Congressman David Cicilline is lashing out at the National Rifle Association for an ad it unveiled this week critical of the protection afforded the President’s two daughters.  In a letter to supporters, Cicilline calls it a “new low” and says petty personal attacks have no place in the public debate on gun violence prevention. “The NRA doesn’t want to have a serious discussion on gun violence,” Cicilline says,  adding  “they just want to drag things into the gutter.”  

(PROVIDENCE, RI) In Portsmouth, fundraising efforts are underway to help the high school band get down to Washington DC to play in the President’s inaugural parade. The invitation came out of the blue.
