President Obama has worked tirelessly to stand up to the gun lobby and make our country safer from gun violence. The progress we have made under his leadership will keep guns out of dangerous hands and save lives.
So grateful for the incredible work Michelle Obama has done to encourage students to pursue higher education. #BetterMakeRoom
NJ just became a safer place to live thanks to a new responsible law that makes it harder for domestic abusers to get guns. This is a real victory for the kind of common sense and bipartisanship that our country needs a lot more of!
January is a time for new beginnings and new pledges. But it is also the time of year that I think most about the shooting that killed six of my constituents, injured 12 others, and put a bullet through my head.

Excited to be back on Capitol Hill today to meet with lawmakers and discuss how we can reduce gun violence and make our communities safer in 2017.

Wishing you all a healthy and happy new year!
Four years ago, America's heart broke when 20 children and six educators were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.

We carry the pain of the Newtown families with us. We meet the reminder of their loss with a promise to stand together. And we honor their spirit by committing to make our communities safer.

My heart is with the Newtown community today.
John Glenn was a real explorer with real guts. My brother NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly and I had the fortune of getting to know John as he trained for his final mission at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. For a pair of young astronauts like us, showing up to work next to John Glenn was like a rookie playing baseball alongside Babe Ruth or a kid getting music lessons while Mozart composed in the...

Mark & I are excited to join President Obama today in Durham, NH today to talk to voters about why we are supporting Hillary Clinton!
Proud to cast my ballot for Hillary Clinton! In The White House, she will stand up to the gun lobby and stand with the Vocal Majority of Americans who want to make our families safer. Come January, I want to say these two words: “Madam President."
