The Very Rev. Gary Hall, dean of the National Cathedral in Washington, said Thursday morning that "people of faith" should come together to fight for gun control against the "gun lobby." In his opening remarks at a press conference on gun control organized by California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, Hall spoke about the influence of the so-called gun lobby in Washington. "Now, everyone in this city seems to live in terror of the gun lobby," Hall said. "But I believe the gun lobby is no match for the cross lobby." Watch the video below:

The press conference, which includes law enforcement officers and victims of gun violence, was organized to collect support for a new assault weapons ban, championed by Senator Feinstein. Feinstein also put on display 10 of the firearms that would be banned by the feds under her proposal.
