Kasich Calls for New Gun Rights Discussions

(ABC's "This Week")

By    |   Sunday, 12 Nov 2017 03:31 PM

In effort to respond in earnest to the mass shootings in the United States, Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, called for a discussion among "reasonable people" to "advance something" to "a consensus" while "respecting the Second Amendment."

"I want to get a group of reasonable people – pro gun people and those who favored limits on gun ownership – I want to put 'em in a room and see if we can find common ground, even, however, respecting the Second Amendment," Kasich told ABC's "This Week" host Martha Raddatz on Sunday.

"We're not interested in having somebody come in whose idea is 'we're going to take everybody's gun away.' That won't work."

Kasich unilaterally dismissed the allowance of bump stocks, as used in the Las Vegas attack on a country music festival from a room at Mandalay Bay hotel.

"Those things ought to be thrown out right away," Kasich told Raddatz.

Kasich, though, refuses to give in to radical ideas on either side of the debate on other gun control, or gun rights, measures.

"I can't tell you this effort will be successful; I don't know," Kasich said, calling for gun discussions. "Here's what I do know: If we can get pro gun and those who want to have limits on some of the things that we see – bump stocks, people carrying arsenals around in their cars, or whatever it is – that is the best chance to be able to advance something, when there is a consensus.

". . . Without this process I'm not convinced we'll make progress. I know just arguing back and forth isn't working."
