Each thanked the other for agreeing, though neither appears to have shifted on the issue. “I am always grateful for the opportunity to engage in positive, civil discussion on the substantive issues of the day – especially with those with whom I disagree. Today’s meeting was productive and respectful, and I appreciate Alyssa and Fred’s willingness to come here with an open mind.

I believe more conversations like this will go a long way in helping unite and heal our divided country,” Cruz said in a statement, referring to Fred Guttenberg, a gun reform activist who lost his daughter in the 2018 Parkland, Fla., school shooting and also attended the meeting. ADVERTISEMENT“We all agree we have far too many of these mass shootings, and they need to stop.

It is long past time for everyone to put away the partisan talking points so we can work together to solve this problem. We need to act,” Cruz added. Milano similarly issued a statement on Instagram, saying that this is an issue Americans of both parties “want fixed.” “I hope @sentedcruz will seize this moment and urge his party’s leadership to advance the life-saving gun violence prevention bills pending in the Senate to a full debate and vote, Milano said in her caption.

We can’t solve gun violence by talking only with people who agree with us. I’m grateful for the opportunity to speak to Senator Cruz, and I hope our discussion inspires Americans across the political spectrum to reach across the partisan divides in our nation.

There is a gun violence epidemic in America that 90% of us want fixed. Republicans and Democrats alike. I hope @sentedcruz will seize this moment and urge his party’s leadership to advance the life-saving gun violence prevention bills pending in the Senate to a full debate and vote. We can’t solve gun violence by talking only with people who agree with us.
