CNN’s Blitzer on Guns: ‘When Does This Become a Public Health Emergency?’
BLITZER: "This is the second year in a row where the mortality rate of gun death rose in the United States, according to the center for disease control. When does this become a public health emergency?"
CASTRO: "I think it is a public health emergency. It's sad to say, before yesterday's shooting I was having a conversation with a few colleagues after the Las Vegas shooting, and everything in this conversation was frustrated that nothing has been happening in Congress. Not even doing something about the bump stock problem that turned that semiautomatic weapon into an automatic weapon."
