(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was vague in her answer about how Senate gun control legislation, now under consideration, could have prevented the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but said initiatives for school safety might have provided better protection to the children in Newtown.
“How can we ever not act upon the killing of 20 little children?” she asked.
Pelosi cited an initiative about school safety in the Senate bill and its background check changes, which she said, “would have been very important.” The guns used in the shooting in Newtown, Conn., however, were purchased legally. Adam Lanza took the weapons used in the shooting after murdering his mother, Nancy Lanza, who had passed background checks when purchasing them. […]
“The legislation that is moving forward in the Senate—and hopefully we’ll have something similar in the House—is about background checks, which I think would have been very important,” Pelosi said, “ending the gun trafficking to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t, straw purchases, all of that. And initiatives for school safety.”
“I think if you just want to focus on one thing, initiatives for school safety might have protected those children a lot better,” she said. “How can we ever not act upon the killing of 20 little children around 6 years old each?”
