Raw Story reports:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday accused Democrats of politicizing the latest school massacre and insisted that “evil” would always be present regardless of gun laws. “Our prayers are with the families and all of those children who went through that horrible horror,” Cruz said.
“This horror shouldn’t exist. And we don’t know right now exactly why this deranged individual did this. I’m sure in the days to come we are going to find out more about what his motives were. But whatever they were, they were evil. And this is a horrible, horrible thing and our prayers are with those Florida families.”
“We have seen that evil can occur whether in Parkland or in a church in Texas or in schools across the country,” he insisted. “I mean, there are murderers. Evil is sadly always present and we need to do what we can to act to prevent it. Sometimes you see brave heroes who are able to step forward. Sometimes you have heroes that are armed and can engage the killer and stop them and save people’s lives.”
Cruz goes on to blame the Obama administration for last year’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, in which the Air Force had failed to record the killer’s 2012 court martial for domestic violence, which should have prevented him from buying his weapon. In 2016 Ted Cruz took more NRA blood money than any member of Congress.
