From the February 15 edition of CNN Newsroom with John Berman and Poppy Harlow:
JOHN BERMAN (HOST) You did more than you were supposed to do. You couldn't possibly do any more than you did. Yet, 17 people died. So who can do more? Who needs to do more?
MELISSA FALKOWSKI: Congress needs to do more. Congress needs to do more. They need to come together. They need to -- it shouldn't be a partisan issue. It shouldn't be a Republican or a Democrat, an independent issue, it should be everyone, all of us needing to work together to end gun violence, to keep our kids safe. The Florida state legislature needs to do something to make, you know, to make gun laws stricter in Florida. Something has to be done. You have to at least have the conversation. Everyone will say this is not the time. It is not the time to have the conversation. There is no better time to have the conversation because we'll move on from this, and then in a few weeks or a month we'll be right back in the same situation with another school and more people and now is the time.
