Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour blamed President Barack Obama and the Democrats for the country’s sequestration mess and said the party should come to the table with alternatives.

“The Republican House has twice — twice — passed alternatives to the sequestration,” Barbour said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The Democrats have never taken it up. The president has never dealt with it. Why don’t the Democrats put up an alternative?”

Commenting on Vice President Joe Biden’s “Buy a shotgun” missive last week, Barbour said gun control is not the solution to preventing mass murders.

“I think what’s more important here . . . everything this man did who murdered these children in an awful, horrific, unbelievably gruesome thing, was already illegal, and that’s why guys like me say, if you make having guns illegal, only criminals will have guns,” he said in reference to the shootings in Newtown, Conn., in December of 2012. “I think gun control is not an answer at all, but there are answers we’ve got to find.”
