The resolution, H. Res. 759, was introduced by Reps. Dave Camp (R-MI) and Dale Kildee (D-MI).
It states that whereas "Jim Pouillon is mourned by his family, friends, community, and fellow defenders of the First Amendment and the unborn," the House of Representatives "offers its condolences to Jim Pouillon's family" and "commits to the American principle that the suppression of thought by any means and by either government or individuals must always yield to the right of free speech and that violence is never an appropriate response to a difference in beliefs."
In a letter to fellow legislators, Camp and Kildee urged the House to pass the resolution. "Jim was a fixture in the Owosso community and many knew him for his public displays opposing abortion," wrote the pair. "As the House of Representatives has made clear many times before, the use of deadly violence is never an appropriate response to a difference in beliefs."
