Endorse This! Colbert Rips Cruz For This Stupid Solution To School Shootings
As we learn more and more about the horrible details surrounding the deadly school massacre in Uvalde, Texas, we get to see all the feckless Republicans do the old song and dance on guns. When they're not gassing up the dump trucks of thoughts and prayers to avoid any accountability for doing the NRA's bidding, they're suggesting absolutely laughable solutions to school shootings.
Late Show host Stephen Colbert dismantled Senator Ted Cruz’s latest moronic suggestion that locked doors or single entry and exit points would stop mass shootings
.“So he just wants sensible door control,” noted Colbert. “Now look, increasing security, hardening schools, could be a good idea, but what about all the other places where shootings happen – like movie theaters, like churches or grocery stores or everywhere else in America.”
