Kevin McCarthy touts first responders in El Paso shooting


TRAGEDIES. NOW FOR MORE WANT TO BRING IN HOUSE MIN LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY. CONGRESSMAN THANKS VERY MUCH FOR JOINING US THIS MORNING.>> I WISH WE WERE JOINING YOU ON A DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCE. THIS NATION MOURNS FOR JUST VERY SAD, SAD DAY. NO ONE IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD FEAR GOING SHOPPING OR OUT ON A SATURDAY NIGHT. THESE MONSTERS THAT DID THIS, BASED UPON EVIL. WE NEED TO GET THE FACTS SO WE NEED TO MAKE SURE WE DO NOT ALLOW THIS EVER TO HAPPEN AGAIN. MARIA: YEAH, WE ARE WAITING ON THE FACTS AND OF COURSE WE’RE WAITING ON ANY MOTIVE OR INFORMATION OF WHAT WAS BEHIND THESE TRAGEDIES. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SAY IN TERMS OF TO THE PUBLIC IN TERMS OF COMING TOGETHER IN TERMS OF HOPING THAT THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN. IS THIS A MENTAL ISSUE? IS IT SOMETHING ELSE? WHAT CAN YOU SAY?>> WELL, WHATEVER THEIR INTENTIONS WERE, WE KNOW IT WAS BASED ON HATE AND EVIL. THE PLANNING OF WHAT TOOK PLACE, THE ACTIONS OF WHERE THEY WENT, I MEAN, I KNOW TODAY IS A DAY THAT MILLIONS OF AMERICANS WILL GO OUT TO THEIR PLACE OF WORSHIP , SO WE WILL LIFT UP THOSE FAMILIES WHO ARE MOURNING, WE’LL LIFT UP THEIR LOSSES. WE WILL THANK THE FIRST RESPONDERS WHEN WE LOOK AT THEIR ABILITY TO RESPOND IN DAYTON, OHIO IN LESS THAN ONE MINUTE, THEY WERE THERE, WITH AN INDIVIDUAL THAT HAD HIS OWN ARMOR ON AND OTHERS. I THINK IT IS RESPONSIBLE THAT WE ALLOW THOSE LAW ENFORCEMENT TO DO THEIR JOB BUT WHEN THE JOB IS DONE, WE SHOULD COME TOGETHER AS ONE, AND FIND AREAS IN WAYS THAT WE CAN MAKE SURE THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN, BUT THIS IS A SAD DAY FOR THIS NATION, AND I KNOW ALL WILL MOURN TOGETHER, BUT WE WILL FIND HOW WE SOLVE THIS PROBLEM ONCE WE GET ALL OF THE INFORMATION. MARIA: YOU KNOW, WE HEARD FROM THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF TEXAS EARLIER AND HE WAS TALKING, IT WAS A VERY PASSIONATE CONVERSATION REALLY AND HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE TONE THAT THE PUBLIC USES ON SOCIAL MEDIA. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT VIDEO GAMES ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE TRIGGERED CERTAINLY THE VIDEO GAME SITUATION HE WAS SAYING MAY HAVE TRIGGERED THE SHOOTER THERE IN EL PASO BUT WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT, IN TERMS OF UNDERSTANDING THAT WORDS MATTER, AND THAT WHEN WE’RE TALKING TO EACH OTHER ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR LOOKING AT VIDEO GAMES WHERE THEY’RE USING VIDEOS OF CHARACTERS WITH THESE WEAPONS , IS THERE A CONVERSATION TO BE HAD ABOUT THAT, ABOUT THE TONE THAT THIS COUNTRY IS USING? ITS BECOME COMMON PLACE TO SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT TO ANYBODY ON SOCIAL MEDIA.>> I THINK WE SHOULD, AND YOU WANT TO SEE FROM THESE INDIVIDUALS WHAT THEY WROTE IN OTHERS, BUT THIS MAY BE A PLACE THAT WE COULD FIND THIS AHEAD OF TIME. THERE MAY BE A PLACE OF WHAT’S BEING WRITTEN CAN BE CHANGED TO BE AN INDICATION THAT AN INDIVIDUAL NEEDS HELP AND OTHERS THAT WE CAN STOP BUT THE IDEA OF THESE VIDEO GAMES THE DEHUMANIZING OF INDIVIDUALS TO HAVE A GAME OF SHOOTING INDIVIDUALS AND OTHERS HAVE ALWAYS FELT THAT IS A PROBLEM FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS, AND OTHERS. WE’VE WATCHED SOME STUDIES THAT HAVE SHOWN BEFORE WHAT IT DOES TO THE INDIVIDUAL. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS OF HOW IT TOOK PLACE, YOU CAN SEE THE ACTIONS WITHIN VIDEO GAMES AND OTHERS. WHAT I’D LIKE TO DO IS MAKE SURE TO JUST GET ALL THE FACTS, WHERE THERE ARE INDICATIONS AND THERE’S TIMES BEFORE THAT WE HAVE FOUND THIS AND THERE’S TIMES BEFORE THAT WE’VE PROVEN THIS TO COME TOGETHER, JUST IN THE LAST CONGRESS WHEN WE FOUND THERE WAS A SHOOTING IN TEXAS, THAT AN INDIVIDUAL SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THAT WEAPON BECAUSE HE WAS DISHONORABLY DISCHARGED BECAUSE THERE WAS ABUSE THAT HE DID WITHIN HIS OWN FAMILY, BUT WE FOUND THIS IN THE NATIONAL CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK. WE CAME TOGETHER TO MAKE SURE IT WAS OUR OWN MILITARY THAT WAS NOT PUTTING THAT FORWARD GIVING THE INFORMATION AT THE TIME, THAT THAT COULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED. THAT THAT WEAPON WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN IN THAT INDIVIDUAL’S HAND BUT WE DID COME TOGETHER AND REFORMING THAT IS THAT WE WERE ABLE TO MOVE AND ACTUALLY HELP FACE IT AT THE SAME TIME, OR THE BUMP STOCK THAT WAS ACTUALLY PUT FORWARD IN THE PRIOR ADMINISTRATION WE WERE ABLE TO CHANGE. MARIA: WHICH BRINGS UP THE ISSUE OF GETTING THE RIGHT BALANCE OF GUN SAFETY, GUN RIGHTS BUT ALSO GUN SAFETY, WE HEAR THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT GUN CONTROL YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE IT TO A POLITICAL PLACE BUT THERE IS A CONVERSATION TO HAVE ABOUT GUN RIGHTS VERSUS GUN SAFETY.>> WELL THOSE ARE DISCUSSIONS TO HAVE WHEN YOU HAVE THE GUN SAFETY BUT THERE IS ALSO A DISCUSSION TO HAVE AND ANALYZE THE LAWS THAT ARE ON THE BOOKS TODAY WHEN SOMEONE GOES THROUGH AND THEY FOUND OUT THEY ARE TRYING TO PURCHASE A WEAPON THEY AREN’T ABLE TO DO THE LATEST THAT I FOUND ONLY 8% OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS SOMETHING IS DONE ABOUT THAT. THOSE ARE EARLY INDICATIONS AND WHEN YOU LOOK IN THE PAST FROM THESE VERY SAD SITUATIONS, HORRIFIC, THAT THE FBI WAS WARNED NOT ONCE BUT TWICE, CALLED AND TOLD ABOUT THE PAST OF THIS INDIVIDUAL HOW THEY WERE TREATING ANIMALS AND THE NAME WAS GIVEN. YOU SHOULD NEVER SPEAK OF THE NAMES OF THESE MONSTERS THAT DO THESE TERRIBLE HEINOUS ACTIONS BECAUSE I THINK THAT’S PART OF WHAT THEY WANT IN PART CAN BE COMING TO SOCIAL MEDIA, BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY DO PRIOR, BUT COULD WE FIND THEM? WE FOUND THAT IN FLORIDA, THAT THE FBI WAS WARNED TWICE, AT TWO DIFFERENT TIMES MONTHS APART, AND THAT COULD HAVE BEEN STOPPED SO ARE THERE PLACES TODAY THAT WE DO HAVE AN ACTION THAT WE CAN STOP THIS THAT IS NOT BEING MOVED FORWARD, AND THAT IS WHY THE LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO THEIR JOB, FIND THE
