Former GOP House Rep. David Jolly: If You Want Any Action On Guns, Dems Must Flip The House [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Former Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) on Wednesday night argued American voters must flip the House of Representatives to a Democratic majority if they want Congress to address gun control in the wake of a Florida high school shooting that left 17 people dead and others injured.

“And so if this is the issue that defines your ideology as a voter, there are two things I would suggest tonight. First, flip the House. Flip the House,” Jolly told “CNN Tonight.” “Republicans are not going to do a single thing after this shooting we saw today. But I would also offer to Democrats, work for incremental wins.”

The former Florida congressman said “Republicans will never do anything on gun control,” referencing the shooting at a baseball field last year that left Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) seriously injured. “The idea of gun policy in the Republican Party is to try to get a speaking slot at the NRA and prove to that constituency that you’re further right than generations past of Republicans have been on guns,” he said.
