Joe Walsh: This Is Time for Responsible Gun Owners to Stand Up and Say Enough to Senate Republicans
WALSH: "Look, Willie, I’m a gun owner, a responsible gun owner. I’m somebody who Fred Guttenberg called a crazy gun nut a few years ago, and if Fred and I can sit down together and try to find common ground, damn it, anybody can. Willie, I don’t think anything happens until responsible gun owners like me stand up, get off our ass, and pressure Senate Republicans to do something. I am so pissed off that folks like Fred have been out there tirelessly for the last few years doing this all on their own. This is time for responsible gun owners to stand up and say enough, and, Willie, I think the spot to do it in is before anybody buys a gun. Universal background checks should be automatic. Red-flag laws should be automatic. This is where I think the two sides can come together."
