CA Dem Speaker Says All Pro-Gun Politicians As Guilty As Shooter

Henry Rodgers | Capitol Hill Reporter

California Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon said Monday that all pro-gun politicians and lobbyists are just as guilty as the Las Vegas shooter.

The Democratic assembly speaker tweeted that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock didn’t act alone in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, blaming every gun lobbyist and politician that supports the Second Amendment.

Rendon added that the police gave a false statement by saying the shooter appeared to have acted as a lone wolf.

“The police say the shooter appeared to have acted alone. That’s not true,” Rendon said.

It is still unclear how Paddock acquired his guns, but leading Democrats are already demanding stricter gun control legislation, claiming that this tragedy could have been prevented.

Paddock fired hundreds of rounds into a crowd gathered at a country music concert in Las Vegas at 10:08 p.m. local time.

Rendon did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment in time for publication.
