Ted Cruz Says Pols Exploiting School Shooting

http://bcove.me/azmi9te9Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, accused gun control advocates of trying to “exploit” the December shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, arguing they had tried to use the tragedy to advance their policy agenda.

Within hours of the shooting, Cruz said on “Fox News Sunday,” some politicians had emerged to call for increased gun control measures.

Cruz, a freshman Republican, singled out legislation proposed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), which would force owners of assault rifles to register their weapons.

“I don’t think the federal government has any responsibility, creating a national registry of people who choose to lawfully keep and bear arms,” he said.
