Washington (CNN) – Joining a chorus of voices wanting tougher gun laws, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi took her own step towards reform Wednesday by announcing a new task force on preventing gun violence.
"Here in Congress, what we need now are not more words. What we need is action," Pelosi said, announcing Rep. Mike Thompson, a wounded Vietnam veteran and "avid hunter" from California, as the leader of the group.
