Ted Cruz, Marjorie Taylor Greene Blame Democrats for Boulder Shooting

The House just passed two popular pieces of gun legislation that would close existing loopholes. The bill's sponsor expressed relief that Iowans would be able to exercise their gun rights "without a permission slip". "This is not - it should not be a partisan issue".

Speaking on Tuesday to "Fox News Primetime", Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy commented on Dem efforts to prohibit the ownership of automatic, military and assault weapons, saying that there is no need in further restrictions. The gun also has a brace on the back, which allows users to hold the gun against their shoulder for stabilization. President Joe Biden said "we have to act", but prospects for any major changes were dim, for now, in the closely divided Congress.

There is, in short, no legal prohibition - unless the even more conservative Supreme Court now chooses to impose one - on the kind of common-sense gun regulations that are backed by most Americans. But nearly no Republicans voted for these measures (one of the bills had eight GOP votes, the other two), and they have no chance of passage in the Senate unless Democrats curb or abolish the filibuster. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, who have worked together for years to find compromise on background checks, both said they were opposed to the House legislation, which would close loopholes to ensure background checks are extended to private and online sales that often go undetected, including at gun shows, with some limited exemptions for family and other scenarios. A Pew Research Center poll in September 2019 showed a wide majority of Americans, 88%, supported making private gun sales and sales at gun shows subject to background checks, which is what the House-passed bill would do.

"These mass shootings are a particular American experience that our country has failed to take any meaningful action to end ... Then they want to take our guns", she wrote.

Monday's shooting took place in a busy shopping plaza in Boulder, a north-central Colorado city.

Mass shootings in the US since 2010
Biden calls for ban on assault weapons, tighter gun control

Arguing that gun violence should be treated as a public health crisis on par with Covid-19, Rogers described suicides via firearms as a growing problem. "State laws alone will not do it".

While some people are anxious about mass shootings, gun sales have actually skyrocketed during the pandemic. "Finally, a President and a Congress that supports gun reform".

"One week following the shooting in Atlanta, which led to the senseless deaths of eight people and showed us once again the tragic consequences of hate in our nation, another act of gun violence has left ten more dead in Boulder", Sires began in a statement. "They were frightful. I'm reminded though that, you know, America is a big country".

In 2019, Beto O'Rourke of Texas animated his presidential campaign with a call to ban and confiscate assault weapons, a proposal that was politically untenable but was one of the few times anyone with a national political profile staked out the position of reducing the number of guns in circulation - now estimated at almost 400 million in the United States.

"Look, these killings were awful", he said.
