Texas Senator Ted Cruz claims that there have been “too damn many” mass shootings in Texas.
But he has not gone as far as to embrace gun control proposals that Democrats have put forward. In his view, those bills would not have prevented the recent spate of mass shootings in his home state.
“We’ve seen too damn many of these in the state of Texas. So, we need to end them, absolutely, yes,” he declared on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, after recounting the time he spent with mass shooting victims’ families in west Texas.
