Ted Cruz laughs as father of murdered teen calls out GOP failure on guns

By
Oliver Willis -
September 11, 2019

The Texas senator tried to use Chicago as an example of ineffective gun laws ⁠ó Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed in the 2018 Parkland shooting, quickly dismantled his argument.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday met with Fred Guttenberg, father of 14-year-old Jaime Guttenberg, one of the students killed in the February 2018 Parkland school shooting.

The two met to discuss solutions to ending gun violence, in the wake of several mass shootings across the country.

During their discussion, Cruz invoked the city of Chicago, as Republicans often do, to argue against national gun violence laws.

Over Labor Day weekend, [Chicago] had 42 shootings Ė over Labor Day weekend," Cruz said, suggesting that the city's stringent gun laws would not have prevented those attacks.

Guttenberg interjected. "Chicago is exhibit number one of the failure of national gun legislation," he said.

Cruz responded by laughing.

8. You can't see his chin(s) from that front-on angle. I think people are mistaking the very heavy

man on the couch for Cruz, who is in the chair.

14. Damn, those gun-humpers sure LOVE Chicago. They downright adore the Windy City.

Itís their go-to card for ANY discussion of gun legislation. First stop: Chicago.

They are as unimaginative as they are destructive.
