Quote of the Day: Texas AG Responds to CBS ‘Tard’s Attack Over ‘Thoughts and Prayers’ Comment

Via Daily Wire

After a gunman opened fire at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas, Friday morning, where between eight and ten people were killed, CBS News interviewed Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who is a gun rights advocate. The interviewer resorted to the usual media attack, slamming Paxton for responding to the terrible event by offering thoughts and prayers.

The interviewer stated, “You tweeted out that your thoughts and prayers were with the victims, and just sort of being online, you’re getting a lot of reaction for that. You know, thoughts and prayers, we hear that every time there’s a shooting, And you have been a gun rights advocate; you’ve supported carrying guns on university campuses, even churches. How do you respond to people saying ‘Something’s gotta be done? Our children need to be safe, in of all places, their schools.’”

Paxton refused to buy into the idea of some gun control advocates that guns should be outlawed, saying, “Well, I couldn’t agree more; it’s the method of doing that that there may be some disagreement on. People like this are not going to follow gun regulations; law-abiding citizens will. And so disarming law-abiding citizens doesn’t actually protect our children; it puts them at a greater risk.”

Then Paxton continued by pointing out, “The more we regulate, the more time we lose and the more people we’re going to lose. So I would prefer to have people in place to protect our children, not leave it open for somebody who’s not going to follow a gun law to come in and kill as many children as they want to.”

Exactly.

  1. Weapon safety and education should be taught in every school. Anti gun numb nuts don’t understand and don’t want to understand that the armed citizen makes this country safer. Those bent on committing crimes will do so despite any number of laws or restrictions. I’d rather have an armed local take out an active shooter than have to wait for a designated weapons “expert” to arrive, assess the situation and then conference on what to do. If you don’t want a gun, fine, but leave mine alone. I may be the one saving your ass someday.
