Texas GOPer: Ping-Pong kills more people than guns

Texas GOPer: Ping-Pong kills more people than guns
So says incoming Texas Rep. Kyle Kacal, who insists people need their arms "to be safe"
By Jillian Rayfield


Incoming state Rep. Kyle Kacal, R-Texas, will not support any gun control measures in Texas because people need their guns “to be safe,” and, besides, “ping-pongs are more dangerous than guns.”

“People know what they need to do to be safe. We don’t need to legislate that — it’s common sense,” Kacal said, according to the Eagle. “Once everyone’s gun is locked up, then the bad guys know everyone’s gun is locked up.”

“I’ve heard of people being killed playing ping-pong — ping-pongs are more dangerous than guns,” he added. “Flat-screen TVs are injuring more kids today than anything.”
