Her grandfather survived a mass shooting. Then she did, too. Now she’s a House intern during gun background check vote.

When the shooting started at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Carly Novell ducked into a closet inside her journalism classroom and waited.

She said she felt “stoic,” and “in shock really,” as she and her classmates got snippets of information through texts about the killing unfolding in her school on Feb. 14, 2018. It wasn’t until later that she thought about the cruel history: She was the second person in her family to avoid death in a mass shooting this way.

Norcross: We Must Stop Governing From Crisis-To-Crisis

Today, Congressman Donald Norcross (NJ-01) issued the following statement on his vote in favor of the appropriations deal that prevents another shutdown:

“Our country hasn’t even licked its wounds from President Trump’s egotistical, politically-motivated temper tantrum that forced 420,000 federal workers to work without pay and 380,000 to face the uncertainty of a forced furlough, and we cannot make our workforce go through it again. And, that is not even taking into account the thousands more federal contractors who went without pay, as well. American workers undeservedly were the ones that suffered during the longest-ever, 35-day shutdown and that’s despicable. I voted in favor of today’s funding bill to keep our government open because of America’s workers and my fundamental belief that we must stop governing from crisis-to-crisis."
