Mark Kelly Can’t Name a Single Gun Law that Would Have Stopped Oregon Shooting

‘Sometimes there isn’t a specific law that you can point to that would prevent a tragedy like this from happening’

TAPPER: “What gun laws can you point that specifically would have prevented the shooting in Roseburg, Oregon, or any of the horrific shooting events we have seen in the last five years or so?” 
KELLY: “You know -- you know, with individual events, I mean, sometimes there isn't a specific law that you can point to that would prevent a tragedy like this from happening. But with the combination of some really commonsense things that most Americans support, you know, stuff like let's require a background check before anybody gets a gun, and let's try to get people identified as mentally ill if they are dangerously mentally ill, and then let's get that information to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is managed by the FBI. So, you know, often in the case of these mass shootings, if there were a couple components, if we did things better, some of these, not all of them, but some of these tragedies could be prevented.”
