Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) wildly optimistic concept that having one entry in faculties would by some means cease mass shootings was blasted as “boldly ignorant” by a former New York City detective.
One apparent drawback: A young person armed with an assault rifle may kill a guard, or guards, or phalanx of guards on the lone entryway.
The technique is “boldly ignorant,” Marq Claxton stated Saturday on MSNBC’s “The Katie Phang Show.”
The proposal is “dismissive of the clear, obvious danger that is faced by so many people in society because of the prevalence of violence and gun violence in particular,” Claxton remarked. It demonstrates what number of elected officers lack the understanding and the “fortitude to move forward and do the right thing to save lives,” he added.
Cruz and his colleagues “should be working on legislation that minimizes the risk of damage, and could quite possibly and probably save lives,” Claxton added, together with “additional gun restrictions [and] background checks … that have been proven to be effective in saving lives.”
“Nineteen children died! That’s on your hands! Ted Cruz, that’s on your hands!” Texan Benjamin Hernandez informed Cruz when the lads ended up in the identical Houston restaurant Saturday shortly after Cruz praised weapons on the National Rifle Association conference.
