Quotes from the news wire:
What really stood out in Oxford was the role that the parents played, we came up with this bill, building on good work that others have done -- both in the state of Michigan and also federally -- and created a bill that would make it against the law for a person to keep an unsecured firearm if it's reasonable the child could access that firearm.
Bennie Thompson is what you would hope for in a committee chairman, bennie Thompson is serious and experienced, but Bennie Thompson also allows people on Homeland Security Committee, like Elissa Slotkin, to take leads on things that are important to us. You know a lot of my peers, complain about Homeland Security Committee chairman or chairwoman, who don't let them do anything.

I realized after a few people said it, that they were used to either a man running for office and the wife is way in the background, you know, quiet, not a part of the campaign, or there is a strong woman who's running, we've had strong women who have run and won, but their husband is nowhere to be seen. So when they saw a strong woman and a strong man together, that was new for them.
