What’s this? A Democrat says something right for once?
From Daily Wire:
A Democratic candidate running in Pennsylvania’s upcoming special election is cautioning people that calling for more gun control in the wake of the recent shooting in Florida is not the answer to reducing the number of mass shootings in the United States.
Democrat Conor Lamb insists that the best way to prevent mass shootings is to enforce the laws that already exist and not enact more gun control laws.
Washington Times has more:
Mr. Lamb said more money needs to be invested in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and enforcing the background check system.
He said he would be willing to look at proposals aimed at strengthening the system, including closing the gun show “loophole” and expanding firearm background checks in internet sales, but said the focus should be on mental health.
The remarks put him on the other side of the issue from former President Barack Obama, top Democrats on Capitol Hill, and progressive liberals who are demanding new laws, with some calling for an assault weapons ban.
Lamb is right.
Gun control would not have prevented what happened in Florida. Sad but true.
