Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) railed against an incoming Democrat gun control package on Tuesday; Jordan says he’ll “do everything he can to oppose it.”
“I’m going to do everything I can encourage my colleagues to oppose this… hodgepodge of bills that I don’t think would have made one difference in tragedies that we’ve seen recently,” Jordan, R-Ohio, told Fox News Digital.
According to Fox News, “Jordan Tuesday said he believes Democrats are just taking advantage of recent tragedies to advance their agenda. Last week, a gunman killed 21 in a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school. Earlier this month, a man killed 10 people in a Buffalo supermarket in an attack that appeared to be racially motivated.”
“I think it’s just wrong to attack the Second Amendment liberties of law-abiding citizens, and that’s what these bills do,” Jordan said. “The answer is to make sure you have school facilities secured, and you have security officers who are trained and well-equipped to protect kids and teachers and the educational environment – not these various bills that they’ve piled into one hodgepodge package.”
“Democrats, their attitude is never let a crisis go to waste,” Jordan added. “They’re going to try to do their left-wing assault on the Constitution.”
Jordan took to Twitter to say “Taking away the guns of law abiding citizens is never the answer. Period.”
