[WATCH] ‘Spare Me the Bull—-” Rep. Cicilline Fires Back at GOP During Gun Safety Hearing

You can’t shame the shameless, but you can certainly appreciate those who try anyway.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) appeared on CNN on Sunday to speak about several topics that have been at the forefront of the nation’s conscience, from the impending January 6th Committee Hearings to the national gun violence epidemic. And it was the latter that brought out the Rhode Island Rep’s more fiery nature.

Rep. Cicilline first spoke about his confidence in the January 6th House Select Committee’s ability to give the American public new and vitally important information during this week’s upcoming hearings. Aside from showing videos of witness testimony, the panel will lay out a full summary and timeline of the events leading up to and including the riot on January 6th, filling in the gaps with essential details not yet shared with the public.

But his fiery exchange on the House floor during a vote on new gun restrictions meant to keep children safe was at the heart of the interview, as Cicilline spoke about his Republican colleagues’ refusal to pass common-sense gun laws or even entertain the idea of voting with Democrats to ban assault rifles and other automatic weapons.

Cicilline has received death threats for his stance on gun reform.
