Representative Salmon on Gun Control: ‘Stop Placating the American People’

by Betsy Woodruff

Representative Matt Salmon (R., Ariz.) had strong words on Face the Nation for gun-control advocates who seems to promise an end to gun violence. “Let’s stop placating the American people and telling them we’re doing something when we’re really doing nothing.” He recalled the congressman from Columbine, Colo., coming into his office and weeping over the tragedy of that shooting, which happened while the assault-weapons ban was in effect.
