MSNBC commentator Jim Cavanaugh said that if more gun control laws are not passed, the Second Amendment will be a “suicide pact for all of us.”
“This is our own societal failure that we’re not doing something, electing the people who will do something,” Cavanaugh said.
“And you know, the argument that gun safety laws don’t work has–it’s jumped-shark-week. It’s gone. Look at these mass killings. That argument is gone. We need to have reasonable laws, not take away anybody’s rights. Everybody’s got to work together or we make the Second Amendment a suicide pact for all of us, our children, the mall, the school, the college. This is crazy. And we can do better.”
