FL School Shooting Survivor: Media Not Listening to Conservative Side

NRA CEO LaPierre: 'Ridiculous' to Say Armed Security Makes People Less Safe


In the wake of a deadly shooting at a Florida high school, the gun control debate has been thrust back into the spotlight.

On "The Five" on Thursday, Jesse Watters said the GOP has been the "party of ideas" on how to prevent mass shootings, while Democrats have not.

"You've had so many specific ideas come out of the president's mouth about solving this issue," Watters said. "I don't even know what the Democrats want to do on guns."

He noted there have been calls from some Democrats to crack down on specific weapons -- like the AR-15, which was used in the Florida shooting -- but he hasn't heard many ideas from them on how to keep schools safe.

He compared it to the debate over immigration reform, where many Democrats seem committed to opposing anything that President Trump supports.

He pointed out that Trump has suggested hardening soft targets like schools by allowing teachers, administrators and other adults at the school to carry weapons, only to see strong pushback from the left.

"I don't see what the problem is with that. The Democrats seem to want to ban bad guys and good guys from having weapons. I don't understand why we would ban good guys."
