Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has slammed Democrats for blocking his bill that sought to protect schools from mass shootings and other attacks.

Cruz stated on Wednesday’s broadcast of Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime” that Democrats blocked legislation he proposed in 2013.

His bill sought to bolster school security and keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.

However, he said Democrats blocked his bill by keeping it from reaching the 60-vote threshold.

"In 2013, I introduced legislation that would spend $300 million on federal grants to harden schools to make them safer, to make them more protected," Cruz said.

"The Democrats filibustered that legislation."

"I’ve introduced legislation to say schools like this elementary school behind me can get federal grants to harden their security, to put in bulletproof doors, bulletproof glass, to put in armed police officers to protect kids," Cruz continued.

"In 2013, I introduced legislation called Grassley-Cruz, which targeted felons and fugitives and those with serious mental illness," he later added.

"It directed the Department of Justice to do an audit of federal convictions to make sure felons are in the database."

WATCH:

"It directed the Department of Justice to prosecute and put in jail felons and fugitives who try to illegally buy firearms," the senator continued.

"That vote in the Harry Reid, Democrat Senate…a majority of the Senate voted in favor of Grassley-Cruz, but the Democrats filibustered it."

"They demanded 60 votes," Cruz recalled.

"They defeated it because they wanted to go after law-abiding citizens instead of stopping the bad guys.

"We need to stop the bad guys.”
