Interview those that are suppose to serve the people

This is a request to all news media that instead of bringing us stories surrounding victims & families of these senseless acts of gun violence; how about placing the mic in front of our congressional elected officials and asking them directly what action/legislation are they going to implement to stop/halt the purchase of automated weapons. Let’s put the pressure back on those who are meant to serve the people, not the NRA, or those with the most money lining their pockets. This is where, you, the media can help us, the people, get to the real problem. Help us please and keep up the great journalism.
