Ted Cruz says 'disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer' to gun violence

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) defended the Second Amendment rights of Americans on Monday by arguing that "disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer" to gun violence.

The Texas senator argued his point during a Twitter discussion on how to lower murder rates.

Cruz stressed the need to prosecute criminals before they can carry out heinous, violent actions for which they may have a capacity to undertake.

Mr. Cruz insists that targetting law-abiding citizens' constitutional rights won't help to stop violent criminals, tweeting:

Sen. Cruz highlighted Chicago as an example that gun control does not work.

Ted Cruz used Chicago gun violence as an example of failed gun control measures

According to Breitbart, the Illinois city witnessed at least 29 people shot, six fatally, over the weekend of August 23-25, 2019. 

At least 28 individuals were shot, five fatally, the weekend of August 16-18, and 47 were shot, four fatalities, in Chicago over the weekend of August 9-11.

Fifty-three individuals were shot, seven killed, in Democrat-controlled Chicago during the first weekend of August.

Chicago has long been a gun control experiment gone bad, and the city’s gut-wrenching gun violence was even higher in the 1990s when a total ban on handgun ownership was in effect.

For example, whereas that nation was gripped by the fact that nearly 800 people were killed in Chicago in 2016, the annual number of homicides for the years during the 1990s was 900-plus.

Again, these high homicide rates coincided with a ban on handgun ownership in the city.

On Sunday night, following news of the mass shooting in Texas on Saturday, Liberal activist Alyssa Milano questioned the validity of the Second Amendment in a tweet.

Milano took to Twitter to attack Americans' Second Amendment rights but bit off more than she could chew when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) demolished her in response.

The left-wing actress prompted the conversation after snarkily asking Christians to “cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun.”

Cruz chose to address Milano’s question from every angle, using scripture, the founding documents, and real-life examples in defense of the liberty that upholds the Second Amendment.

I’d love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, @tedcruz and also, 1 Peter 4:8,” Milano wrote in response to Cruz’s lengthy thread, addressing one of her previous questions.

“I’ll be in DC next week. We can live-stream the meeting so the American people can hear your bullsh*t 1st hand,” the actor added.

“I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution,” Cruz said Monday evening responding to Milano.

"If we can have a civil & positive conversation—in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest—despite our political differences, that might help resolve the discord in our Nation."
