Ohio GOP Gov. John Kasich railed at Congress Sunday, saying it’s afraid of the political consequences from the National Rifle Association and others in dealing with gun violence and mass shootings.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Kasich said Congress — and both political parties — are “broken.”

“I’m talking about small steps that can be taken that can be effective,” he said. “And Congress ought to do it. I just don't — I don't have any confidence in them. I don't think most Americans do. Nobody's supporting them any more — on both sides. They're both broken.”

Pressed if he believes Congress is afraid of the political consequences from the NRA, Kasich declared “Yes.”

“The answer is, if you're a strong Second Amendment person, you need to slow down and take a look at reasonable things that can be done,” he said.

Kasich said he’s has gathered together a group to look at a response to mass shootings, including the latest in at a Florida high school that killed 17 people.

“You're never going to fix all of this, but common sense gun laws make sense and I'm hopeful that this group that I've assembled on both sides of the issue are going to come together with recommendations,” he said, adding, “If they don't produce anything I'll put my own stuff out.”
