Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after Republicans voted again to block action on H.R. 1076, the bipartisan “No Fly, No Buy” legislation authored by Republican Congressman Peter King:

“The American people want action to keep them safe.  But today, Republicans voted again to block the ‘No Fly, No Buy’ bill – allowing suspected terrorists to continue buying deadly firearms right here in America.

“Republicans’ radical obstruction of the ‘No Fly, No Buy’ bill is beyond dangerous.  As Members of Congress, we take a solemn oath to support and defend the Constitution and the American people.  We must do our duty and close this indefensible loophole.”
