Dan Crenshaw Responds to Weapons Ban
As President Joe Biden and a slew of Democrats and Republicans call for a ban on certain firearms, retired Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw, a decorated combat veteran, explains what he plans to do with his own collection of firearms. Following a string of high-profile mass murders, including one at a Texas elementary school last month, calls for a ban on AR-15 sporting rifles and other so-called assault weapons have resurfaced. he is not willing to give up his Gun yet, the Texas Republican said when asked about gun control rhetoric from Biden and celebrities like actor Matthew McConaughey.

While speaking with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade about Biden’s appearance on late-night TV with Jimmy Kimmel, during which he mocked the GOP’s position on gun control, Crenshaw made the statement. He was curious as to whether Kilmeade’s post-shooting speech had contributed to furthering the debate No. Crenshaw replied, “No” He also believes If you look at what happens after a mass shooting, it’s the same thing they do every time; they politicize it and they try to convince the American people that you can legislate away these extremely rare and anomalous events.
Crenshaw was in agreement that these are some very heinous happenings. But then we must take a step back, put emotion aside, and consider what policies we can implement to prevent these occurrences he insisted. Could these have been avoided? Can mass shooters be predicted? Who or what is making our youth and elders want to commit such horrific acts of mass murder? he queried incredulously. As Crenshaw said, “You can’t politicize it or put emotion in front of reason,” these questions have been difficult since the Columbine shootings.
There is no way that Crenshaw would give up his gun. That’s clear to me. If you’re going to talk about making the legal drinking age in the United States 21 years old, you have to rethink what it means to be an adult in this country. We need a conversation about how teens act and mature. When it comes to gun violence, I don’t think an arbitrary 21 versus 18 is really going to change a whole lot, he is claiming. The Republican senator said that the Senate was considering expanding background checks to include minors.

That’s a very good point. If you’re 18 years old and have a dreadful juvenile record, how are we supposed to know about it in a background investigation? That’s something we should be able to look into as part of your background check, he told me. As for red flag laws, despite what the internet trolls say, I’m really not in favor of red flag laws, Crenshaw said. With a red flag law, you’re enforcing a law before it has been broken and that’s a really difficult thing to do, so there are good arguments and bad arguments on both sides of this argument.
It’s impossible to enforce a law based on someone’s word if you confiscate someone’s property and their right to self-defense, Texas Republican and veteran John Cornyn said that he doesn’t believe that it will have the outcome that many democrats believe it would. Crenshaw’s remarks follow a bipartisan agreement on gun control reached over the weekend in the Senate, which includes tighter controls on gun sales to minors.
He said that the principles they announced today show the value of dialogue and cooperation, which is why he’s the Senate Majority Leader (R-Ky). He will continue to hope that their discussion will result in a bipartisan product that makes significant progress on key issues such as mental health and school safety, respects the Second Amendment, garners broad Senate support, and makes a difference in our country.
