GOP Senator Compares Gun Violence to Drunk Driving the Day After a Mass Shooting

Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, at the U.S. Capitol, in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, amid the coronavirus pandemic. “We have a lot of drunk drivers in America that kill a lot of people,” Kennedy said during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on gun control on Tuesday. Both shootings came up during Tuesday’s hearing, but the focus of the hearing was on gun control measures, like universal background checks and concealed carry laws. AdvertisementIn an angry response to remarks denouncing gun violence from Democrats on the committee, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas condemned any thought of bolstering gun control measures. He closed his remarks by also moving the conversation away from the topic of gun violence and instead talked about his devout religious practices.
