From Senator Ted Cruz:
Washington politicians shouldn’t be taking advantage of
recent tragedy to try to push an aggressive gun control agenda. Real
assault weapons—machine guns—are already functionally illegal, and they
have been since 1934. This proposal would have done nothing to prevent
the terrible murders in Newtown, but it would limit the constitutional
liberties of law-abiding citizens. And gun control doesn’t work – the
empirical data overwhelmingly demonstrate that strict gun-control laws
consistently produce more crime and more murders.
The Second Amendment exists to ensure that law-abiding Americans can
protect their homes and families, and I look forward to helping lead the
fight to defeat this bill and to protect our constitutional right to
keep and bear arms.
Hey Texas, got a few more of this guy, McCain is getting long in the tooth and isn't really conservative anyway.
