Ted Cruz: New Gun Control Proposals 'Unconstitutional' [View all]

Source: Huffington Post

Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) said called recent gun control proposals made in the wake of the Newtown shooting "unconstitutional."

"Within minutes, we saw politicians run out and try to exploit this tragedy, try to push their political agenda of gun control. I do not support their gun control agenda for two reasons. Number one, it's unconstitutional," he told Fox News Sunday. "I don't think the proposals being discussed now make sense."

He also said he would not support new gun control legislation proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that calls for a ban on assault weapons and a new national registry of legal gun owners.

Gun control has been pushed into the spotlight following to tragedy in Connecticut that left 20 children and 7 adults dead. President Obama named Vice President Joe Biden to lead a new task force to address gun laws in America. The issue has captured bipartisan support, with both Democrat and Republican lawmakers saying they'd support bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.
