Sen. Rand Paul acknowledged that part of the problem behind the nation’s mass shootings is cultural and moral, but also qualified that the government can take steps to prevent them.
CNN anchor Jake Tapper asked the Kentucky Republican about a press release from Guns and God Appreciation Day, an event he has endorsed. The group encouraged “participants to be prayerful about returning our nation to God as the only solution to the hatred and mass murder plaguing our blessed nation,” Tapper read, asking Paul, “Do you believe that returning our nation to God, no change in policy, is the only solution, the only way to stop mass shootings in the U.S.?”
The article goes on to state the following:
“No, I think part of the problem is cultural and losing the sense of right and wrong, but that’s not the only answer,” Paul said. “I’ve said yes, we should do something and look at each of the killings and say, ‘What went wrong?’”
“Many of them are committing crimes that we slough off and we’re not prosecuting… “We need to prosecute these boys … beforehand, and typically I think this can be done,” @RandPaul said.https://t.co/9GfHO24kD3
