Klobuchar: Americans Seeing Gun Violence in Different Light

(MSNBC's "Morning Joe")

By    |   Wednesday, 07 August 2019 02:52 PM

The Democratic Party has been united on background checks, but now Americans are seeing the gun violence issue in a different light after the shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio  Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said Wednesday.

"When you look at the facts that in less than one minute, this man [in Dayton] was able to kill nine people, gun them down in less than a minute, despite the best efforts of law enforcement, the fact they were there on the scene immediately, it still didn't stop that bloodshed and massacre of these people and all of the others injured," the Democratic presidential candidate told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

In addition to the deaths in El Paso, "that is really going to change things because it just shows that these kinds of weapons should not be in the hands of these kinds of murderers," she added.

Klobuchar said her saddest time in the Senate occurred when she had to tell parents of children murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School the Senate "didn't have the courage" to pass background check legislation.

Meanwhile, Klobuchar said her campaign is doing "OK," as she is ahead of 18 people and will participate in the fall debates.

"I never thought I was someone that was going to shoot up immediately," she said. "I'm running a grassroots campaign, but it's also a campaign where we're building support every single day."
