The reaction to the church shooting on Sunday in Sutherland Springs is exactly what those that support the Second Amendment predicted it would be.
Democrats are calling for more gun control. So is the mainstream liberal media. And speaking in Sutherland Springs on Monday, Texas Senator Ted Cruz says this is not the time to do that.
“It is an unfortunate thing that the immediate place the media goes after any tragedy is politicizing it. We don’t need politics right now,” Cruz said. “Evil is evil is evil.”
Michael Hammond, the legislative counsel for Gun Owners of America, tells KTRH this is right out of the left's playbook.
“If the left can destroy those rights they can gain political advantage. That’s why they try to do it,” Hammond stated.
President Trump says this is a mental health issue, not a gun issue. CJ Grisham with Open Carry Texas says the President is right and that we aren't talking about mental health enough.
“We are stigmatizing it. People are afraid to go and get help because society stigmatizes those that do,” Grisham explained, adding that we have to change how we deal as a society with those that do have mental illness.
