Texas Attorney General: Church Shooting Is 'Going to Happen Again'

Pastor's 14-Year-Old Daughter Killed in Texas Church Shooting


In the wake of the deadly church shooting in Texas, some Democrat lawmakers are renewing calls for stricter gun control legislation.

On "Outnumbered," Charles Hurt said it's a normal human reaction to look for ways to prevent such tragedies, but it's troubling to see lawmakers immediately trying to "score political points."

"[They are] either throwing out suggestions of things that won't fix anything, or even worse, not even throwing out suggestions, but just blaming it on the Republican Party," Hurt said. "As if there's anyone in the world who wouldn't want to prevent this."

"Don't have kneejerk political reactions to tragedy," Kennedy agreed. "It's always the worst time to craft laws."

Sandra Smith pointed out that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said he would like to see more law-abiding citizens armed and suggested it could help prevent mass shooting events.

"In the vast majority of America, citizens are their own 911," Hurt said. "And it is good for them to be armed."
