Jeb Bush Wants Less Gun Control

As the gun control debate moves forward, especially in the wake of the Charleston massacre, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is taking a stand. Last week he said, "Florida is a pro-gun state. Gun violence has dropped. There's a reason for it." Speaking at a town hall event in Nevada, Bush also said "We created a balance that's focused on lowering gun violence but protecting the Second Amendment, and it's a model for many other countries and many other states because of that." In addition, he added that none of President Obama's gun-control proposals would have prevented any of the massacres that have occurred across the country. He added "Every one of them. There's not been a single thing that he's proposed recently that would have changed the course of any of these tragic cases."

While delivering the eulogy of Rev. Clementa Pinckney, one of nine victims killed in the Charleston, S.C., church shooting, President Obama urged Americans to confront gun violence. Dylann Storm Roof, a 21-year old white man, has been charged with the deaths of nine people in the shooting. He reportedly confessed to officers after his capture and said he wanted to start a race war. Bush went on to say that he didn't think “we need to be politicizing the issue. I'd also say going forward that these cases — that the race system in Charleston or these cases of people who are just mentally deranged — we as a society better figure out how we identify these folks long before they feel compelled to take up a gun and kill innocent people."
