Cruz: ‘We Should be Safeguarding the Constitutional Rights of Lawful, Peaceful Citizens’


Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) said federal lawmakers are focusing on the wrong issues when it comes to gun control. “We should be safeguarding the constitutional rights of lawful, peaceful citizens,” he said on Fox News last night, and that lawmakers are not doing enough to deter and punish criminals. To address this problem, Cruz told Sean Hannity that he is introducing legislation to prosecute the 15,000 people that tried to illegally purchase guns last year; the Obama administration’s Justice Department only prosecuted 44 of those 15,000.
