House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congressman John Lewis, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Congressman Mike Thompson and Congresswoman Robin Kelly will be in attendance, along with the rest of the House Democrats. 

In light of the recent senseless killing of 59 people, with over 500 injured, who were attending the Route 91 Harvest Concert in Las Vegas, some are asking for new, more strict legislation to be created related to guns and gun violence.
