WATCH: Gun Lobby Leader Says Gun Control Caused Texas School Shooting

What’s the cause of school shootings? Across America the debate rages. While one group suggests that perhaps the ease with which a would-be killer can get his hands on deadly weapons, others have proposed that perhaps it’s really about video games or violent movies and music. However, the gun lobby is always happy to step in to take any pro-gun argument to its least logical extreme.

So, instead of focusing on solutions or examining real concerns, Newsmax, ever questing to be the furthest-right media outlet available, invited on Erich Pratt, the Vice President of gun lobby group Gun Owners of America, known among other things for thinking that the NRA compromises too much. Pratt has a lot to say about the cause of gun violence, which, according to him, is gun control. You read that right — gun control isn’t a solution, in his view, but a cause, of gun violence.

Watch as he explains how he believes that gun laws — in Texas — led to the mass murder of innocent children.

“No law that bans a certain object is going to stop an evil, determined heart from killing…The left is calling for gun control, and yet it is gun control that has contributed to this mass shooting that we saw in Texas. 81% of police agree that teachers and staff should be armed, and with good reason, because no school in this country has ever had a mass shooting where were armed teachers and staff…it was a gun-free zone, and that’s what killers often choose to target…Killers love gun control, and that’s what enabled this killer in Texas.”

Notably, as the Associated Press reported at the time, Texas Governor Greg Abbott enacted a law in 2019 that allows school districts to join a marshall program that would allow teachers and staff to carry firearms on campus if they choose to do so.
