While appearing on Fake News CNN, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Ct., did his best to foster more hate and division when he falsely claimed that Republicans are complicit in every single mass shooting that takes place in America.
“In Boulder, that shooter is a deeply disturbed man who became a mass killer because he had an assault weapon that can kill people with the efficiency and speed meant for the battlefield. So guns make all these problems more fatally and deadly, especially for domestic violence victims who then can be killed, five times more likely to be killed in those situations. That’s why we need to make sure we adopt these common-sense measures,” he said during Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “OutFront.”
“We should not be putting aside Republicans. They bear responsibilities as well,” he added.
“That was the whole point of my exchange this morning with Senator Cruz because they’re the ones who are ducking that responsibility and become complicit in all these shootings. It is not just Boulder, and it is 100 killings a day and not to mention the emotional traumas and injuries that result, the eight children that are lost every day of guns that are stored unsafely. I think my Republican colleagues are going to be put on record. We’ll have a vote. We have a president who’s committed to this cause, both House of Congress and most importantly we have a popular political movement, a grassroots movement led by a new generation like the Parkland students and March for Our Lives.”
Earlier in the day, Cruz blasted Blumenthal and other Democrats during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, calling their rhetoric “ridiculous theater.”
Here’s video of that:
Cruz also addressed the issue during an interview with Sean Hannity.
Cruz is exactly right. He and other Republicans have worked hard to ensure criminals and those seen as mentally ill would not be able to get guns. But Democrats like Blumenthal blocked those efforts and are choosing instead to push an agenda stripping law-abiding gun owners of their rights.
