GOP Sen. Dismisses Gun Restrictions Since We Don't 'Get Rid Of Sober Drivers' Due To Drunk Drivers

CSPAN-3

Following the back-to-back mass shootings in Georgia and Colorado, many Americans have renewed the call for stricter gun control in the United States.

Republicans in Congress, however, have been going to extreme lengths to show that control isn't the answer.

During a speech in front of the Senate, Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana tried to vilify gun control, likening stricter regulations to taking away sober drivers' licenses.

It didn't take a genius to see that the sort of regulations that apply to driving are the exact kind of regulations Democrats want to apply to gun ownership.



In a way, many pointed out, Kennedy was making the liberals' point for them.



Republicans always have a reason why the mass shootings in America must continue.



According to Joe Kennedy, the near-weekly deaths of innocent people are regrettable, but a price we must pay so that every American who wants to can own a gun.



Kennedy's argument didn't hold water with many people online.


It's doubtful John Kennedy will be pleased when and if Democrats take his analogy to its logical conclusion, passing common-sense gun laws to try and prevent future deaths.
