Gun control continues to be a hotly debated topic in Washington, and the Senate is expected to discuss the matter later this week. Neugebauer said these debates bring up serious issues concerning our 2nd Amendments rights, but adds that none of the legislation that has been brought up would have stopped any of the recent mass shootings that have been spurring the gun control debate.

“One of the things that I think kind of bothers me about a lot of this debate…is that some of the things that are being talked about really wouldn’t have prevented some of these tragedies that took place in Colorado and Connecticut. And what I’m afraid of is what happens in Washington D.C. is we do things that we think make us feel better, but they really don’t solve the problem. I’m afraid some of these gun issues are headed down that same road.”

One of the more recent gun control ideas brought up is expanding background check to online sales and sales at gun shows. But Neugebauer suggested that, instead of expanding these checks, there should be harsher penalties instituted for the background checks we have now. He added that too much focus is being placed on the guns themselves, while the bigger issues, such as mental health, remain unaddressed by the left.
