Yang breaks down at Town Hall

She described how one of her children witnessed the death of the other, prompting Yang to hug her and as he returned to the stage he started to tear up. I have a 6 and a 3-year old boy and… I was imagining it was one of them that got shot and the other saw it,” he said. “I’m so sorry.”

Democratic presidential contenders urged Congress on Saturday to take action to curb gun violence in the wake of mass shootings last weekend in Texas and Ohio that left 31 dead.

Speaking at a hastily convened forum in Iowa, they called for the imposition of universal background checks on gun buyers, so-called “red flag” laws, and ultimately a ban on military-style assault weapons.

They also said they believed the long-standing debate on gun violence in America was shifting in favor of stronger restrictions.

The candidates took questions from gun-control advocates and shooting survivors at a forum sponsored by Everytown for Gun Safety, an advocacy group founded by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
