After receiving an award in New York City on Thursday evening in recognition of her continued leadership in gun violence prevention efforts, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called the issue a “national emergency” and urged Americans not to give up hope that the gun lobby can be defeated.

“It is long past time to say enough,” said Clinton, the Democratic front-runner and former secretary of state. “Enough talk. Enough delay. It is time to act.”

Clinton received the inaugural Mario M. Cuomo Leadership Award at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence’s Annual Brady Bear Awards Gala, where the tagline of the night was “enough”—of shootings and gun-related deaths nationwide.
