Rep. Byron Donalds recently appeared on Fox News to discuss gun control and inflation.
The host asked the congressman whether there was any gun control he’d support. Rep. Donalds said he wouldn’t support any gun control measures presently on the table. The shooters passed the federal background checks.
“I think it’s heinous what they did, but they went through the legal process to acquire the weaponry.” He added that raising the minimum age to purchase handguns would deprive 18-20 year-old Americans of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
What we should be looking at, Rep. Donalds said, are mental health issues. The mental health of the recent shooters is what slipped through the cracks. Family and friends, and people in schools and in the communities had known about these issues for a long time.
The host asked how to put that into policy. Watch the brief clip below to hear the congressman’s response.
