Congressman Randy Neugebauer Says Colorado Tragedy Should Not Lead to Tighter Gun Control [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the latest goings-on in our nation's capital.
Neugebauer expressed his condolences to the victims and families of the victims of the tragic shooting at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado last weekend. He believes that this tragedy will bring the anti-gun people out in "full force." But Neugebauer said that gun control should not be the big issue here.
"Unfortunately, these kinds of events always bring out the anti-gun groups, I'm sure those people will step forward. I think the most appropriate thing anyone can be doing right now is just reflecting on this horrible tragedy and the impact it's going to have on these families."
Speaking of gun control, Neugebauer also talked about the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Neugebauer said the intent of the bill is to stop the trade of weapons on the global black market. However, he realizes that many people are concerned about the UN having jurisdiction over the U.S. supply of guns, and that he would keeping a close eye on this treaty.
Neugebauer also spoke about the Farm Bill. He said that the bill was good for farmers and has made a lot of reforms in the production and agriculture markets. Unfortunately, those reforms are overshadowed by the large portion of the bill dedicated to food stamps.
