“What's shameful is the administration's ongoing politicization of the Newtown tragedy as a reason to ram through an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime,” said Cruz’s press secretary, Catherine Frazier.
“Our focus should be on stopping criminals from obtaining guns, which the Obama Administration has failed to make a priority. Sen. Cruz remains committed to the fight to protect and uphold Americans' fundamental 2nd Amendment rights, and will use any procedural means necessary to that end as guns legislation is considered in the Senate.”
President Obama’s proposed gun measures would not have done anything to stop what occurred in Newtown. Nonetheless, he has made an effort to tie all of his efforts on gun control to the tragedy at Sandy Hook in order to effectuate his policy proposals.
