SC Senator Tim Scott Wants to Know: ‘What Type of Gun Law’ Would Have Stopped Charleston Shooting?

Appearing on Fox News’ Megyn Kelly show, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott had a trenchant question. “What type of gun law would have made this situation not occur?” Scott asked.

The left is already using this incident to call for even more “background checks,” for instance. But this killer passed his background check, so what else do they want?

Scott also slammed Obama[1] for the president’s renewed attack on our Constitutional rights.

“What type of gun law would have made this situation not occur?” Scott asked, appearing Friday on Fox News’ “The Kelly File.”

Scott said Obama was “off base” on his assessment, as shooter Dylann Roof had already broken existing gun laws by owning a gun as a felon and entering a church with a firearm.

“The laws were already broken,” Scott said. “To suggest that there’s somehow a way for us to specifically stop this occurrence with gun legislation seems to be inconsistent with the facts as we know them on the ground.”

Criminals don’t follow laws.
