McMorris Rodgers on Ralph Peters: ‘We Shouldn’t Be Focused on Taking Away Guns from Law-Abiding Citizens’
McMORRIS RODGERS: "Well, I think that we have a terrible situation in Florida. There’s a lot of emotionally- charged rhetoric. The shooter in the Florida case should have never had this gun and that’s where we need to take a step back and for people who are law-abiding citizens, we shouldn’t be focused on taking away guns from law-abiding citizens. We do need to make sure that our schools are safe and we also need to make sure that people that shouldn’t have guns like in the case of the Florida shooter the FBI dropped the ball, that we ensure that the databases are in place, the house has taken action we pass legislation, Congress must act to make sure that the background checks are done in a way to protect our society from people that should not have guns."
