Senator Cruz Loses It on Reporter Over Mass Shooting Question

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) had about all he could take from a UK reporter.

After the Uvalde, TX, mass shooting, a UK journalist immediately went for the throat with Cruz.

Cruz held it together initially, then he just about lost it before walking away.

Cannot Answer

Mark Stone of Sky News put Cruz on the spot immediately after the mass shooting over the rash of mass shootings in this country.

Cruz was giving a reaction regarding the families when Stone asked Cruz, “Is this the moment to reform gun laws?”

That was when Cruz appeared to have heard enough…

So, let’s straighten out some of the information from both sides.

Cruz was wrong for calling this the safest country in the world because we are far from it.

Out of 113 recognized nations, the United States is the 56th highest crime rate globally, according to World Population Review.

In terms of mass shootings only happening in America, that is just flat-out wrong.

While they do occur more frequently here, at least five other nations have experienced mass shootings in recent years (Afghanistan, Brazil, Crimea, New Zealand, and Russia).

According to World Population Review, the United States ranks 11th in the overall mean death rate due to mass public shootings in recent years.

However, those stats are a bit off, as the nations ranked above the United States have not had mass shootings in years.

For example, Norway, which is ranked #1, is based on a single event that took place more than a decade ago.

There is no denying that gun ownership in this country has saved far more lives than it has taken, and that statistic is not even close.

Louder with Crowder did a segment on this recently, but keep in mind, some of the mass shooting stats he refers to are dated, so that part of his argument is suspect…

Other than the one discrepancy I mentioned above, however, Crowded was dead on in everything he said, especially in regard to how Democrats characterize these events and gun ownership (the same Democrats that have people armed to the teeth around them for most of their careers).

So, what is the answer? It is not taking away firearms from law-abiding citizens, especially when you consider the rising crime rates in the country.

When you look at the crime rates of the countries above us, many of them do not allow gun ownership, so it is a scary thought of what our crime would be if law-abiding citizens had their firearms taken away.

The answer is in looking at how we better recognize these horribly broken individuals that carry out these horrific shootings.

The answer it to pass legislation that secures our schools and protects our children.

Sadly, our politicians are too worried about spitting venom at each other than sitting down and working something out to protect the people of this country in ways that would be very easily implemented.
