Five protesters, led by Democratic congressional challenger Louie J. Campos, gathered outside Republican Rep. Devin Nunes’ Clovis office on Wednesday morning to urge Nunes and the GOP-led Congress to vote on gun legislation.

Campos, an accelerated instruction tutor from Visalia, said he just wants Nunes and Congress, to “do their jobs.” Individuals on the Homeland Security no-fly list should not allowed to purchase guns, and Congress needs to take action regarding gun legislation, he said.

“Nunes, take a vote. Let us know where you are,” Campos said.

Nunes, the incumbent in the 22nd Congressional District, was not immediately available for comment.
