Democratic Congressman Henry Cuellar agreed with Fox News host Tucker Carlson Monday that gun control laws don’t work.
“I think there are some people who believe in gun control,” the Texas congressman told Carlson. “I don’t believe in gun control. I think you can have responsible people do the right thing with a gun but unfortunately sometimes you get a situation like this that it’s hard to explain but just taking guns away from everybody is not going to solve the issue.”
Carlson then wanted to know why people keep making that argument.
“Can you think of a single place in the United States that has become safe because of gun control?” he asked Cuellar.
“No,” the congressman quickly answered.
“Right,” Carlson said. “I don’t think anyone else can think of when either so why do people keep proposing it?”
