(TargetLiberty.org) – Following Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder, CO by a Syrian immigrant, Democrats have launched the usual chorus of demands for gun control. It’s not likely the laws they’re calling for would work; it’s just political roleplaying. And now, a GOP senator has called them out on it.

— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) March 24, 2021
On March 23, a day after Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa’s deadly rampage, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) condemned the “ridiculous theater” being played out by left-wing lawmakers. Cruz said the renewed demands for universal background checks would take guns from law-abiding citizens, when the focus should be on keeping them out of the hands of criminals.
Cruz went on to blast Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) who accused Republicans of offering nothing on mass shootings except “thoughts and prayers.” Cruz pointed out that this was false, and that Cruz himself, along with Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), had twice introduced a tough gun control bill aimed at criminals and those with serious mental illnesses.
Both times the bill was introduced, in 2013 and 2019, Democrats voted it down.
