Sen. Cruz Defends Constitution in Gun Legislation Debate
This morning, several senators debated the merits and Constitutionality of the gun control legislation proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). It proved to be a somewhat heated and emotionally driven discussion for Sen. Feinstein.
However, in response to Sen. Feinstein and some of the other liberal senators in the discussion such as Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen. Cruz responded with some key points asking that reason and data be the drivers behind the debate rather than passions.
He questioned both the Constitutionality and the effectiveness of the Sen. Feinstein’s legislation and asserted that there are more effective policy proposals for reducing gun violence and punishing violent criminals, which at the same time would maintain a greater and more appropriate level of respect for our Second Amendment rights.
