"Exploitation" - Really?
So Ted Cruz thinks that politicians were and are “exploiting” the events at Sandy Hook to pass an agenda on gun control. Ok. Let me ask a question then: does that matter?
The problem is the problem and any way to help is any way to help. If you want to challenge an assault weapons ban, then challenge it on the merits of how it would reduce killings. If you want to challenge universal background checks, then challenge them based on how effective they would be. But don’t imply that proposals like these are invalid simply because of when and why people started thinking about them.
