Alyssa Milano: I Made It Clear to Ted Cruz that We Just Want To Take Guns from Certain People

‘I’m cautiously optimistic that he knows the issue and hopeful, I guess, that he’s willing to do something about it’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MILANO: “I think that he understands the magnitude of the issue right now, especially in regards to mass shootings in this country and the apparent weapon of choice, which is usually the a.r.-15 assault rifle in which these killers kill people. I think he understands. I said to him no 17-month-old baby should ever have shrapnel in her chest in this country. I think he gets it. Now, to understand it and then to have the courage and the fortitude to do something about it are two very, very different things. So I’m cautiously optimistic that he knows the issue and hopeful, I guess, that he’s willing to do something about it. You know, he takes a lot of money from the NRA. We all know this. He has been on the wrong side of this issue, but I do understand how fossilized we are as far as parties. And the most important thing I think in this — on this issue is that this is not even a bipartisan issue, this is a nonpartisan issue. Children are dying in this country from gun violence. 40,000 people a year are dying in this country from gun violence.”
