Ted Cruz on Gun Control Calls: ‘Unfortunate’ That Media Keeps Politicizing Tragedies

Texas Senator Ted Cruz went to Sutherland Springs today a day after the horrific church shooting, and he talked about how the community has come together to support each other after such evil.

One reporter brought up gun control and Cruz said this in response:

“You know, it is an unfortunate thing that the immediate place the media goes after any tragedy, after any murder, is politicizing it. We don’t need politics right now. You know, I would note in New York we saw a terror attack just this week with a truck. Evil is evil is evil, and will use the weaponry that is available.”

He also heralded the bravery of the armed man who “stepped forward to engage the gunman.”
