In an appearance with a liberal TV station over the weekend, Chris Sununu expressed his unwavering support for the Second Amendment.
Sununu claimed that stricter limits on weapons will not lower crime on Sunday’s program of “Meet the Press” on NBC News with Chuck Todd.
Sununu made these comments in response to a question concerning current happenings in the United States.
Why did Democrats do nothing while they had the House, the Senate, and the White House for the prior two years if the remedy is “Well, we should just pass more laws?” He made an inquiry into it. They argue that adding new rules isn’t a top priority. They are well aware that some of the worst crime and, frankly, the most irresponsibility with regard to mass killings happens in places with strict gun prohibitions, such as Chicago.
“I’m the governor of one of the safest states in the country, and we also have some of the most flexible, pro-Second Amendment rules and laws in the country because we take these things very seriously,” he said. Making schools safer is the first step in improving young children’s mental health. Instead than trying to patch things up by saying things like, “Well, we should just pass more laws,” we look at what’s really going on. People would truly follow through if it were that easy. The reality, however, is rather different. There would be no Democrats left if it were that simple. In reality, no. Don’t use disasters as a political pawn by capitalizing on real people’s anguish. I think the Democrats are throwing good money after bad.
Sununu also mocked “red flag” regulations, noting that even in places like Chicago where they are in place, gun crime is increasing.
He used Chicago’s red flag laws as an example. There have been over 2,000 shootings and homicides in the previous several years. Surely the red flag laws have only been put into effect a couple of times at most. You’re true that in these major cities, despite new programs and stricter rules, things are becoming worse.
When he followed up “More restrictions aren’t the answer,” with “I mean aiding the cops, making sure your streets are safe, and holding individuals responsible,” he was clear about what he meant. The debate over bail reform has gone on long enough. People should not feel that they have nothing to lose if they are held responsible. Especially in the major cities you name, that happens regularly and takes many forms across the country.
