'QUITE HONESTLY AS REPUBLICANS'
‘Doesn’t Care About Dead Children’: Senator Blasted for Opposing Gun Bill Says He’s ‘More Interested’ in Winning Elections
A Republican Senator was quickly put in the hot seat after he admitted that he’s “more interested” in winning elections than in voting for a very modest gun safety bill supported even by Kentucky Senator and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
The legislation, while not offering much for those who were hoping to see a ban on military-grade assault weapons and magazines, and universal background checks offers a little bit of hope by encouraging, but not mandating states to enact red flag laws.
Senator Kevin Cramer of North Dakota announced his opposition to the entire Senate bill on Tuesday afternoon.
“I think we’re more interested in the red wave than we are in red flags,” Cramer said, according to CBS News’ Scott MacFarlane.

“I think we’re more interested in the red wave than we are in red flags. Quite honestly, as Republicans .. and we have a pretty good opportunity to do that”

Kevin Cramer’s disgusting comments (but also very truthful) should be in every midterm ad. Republican voters should be shamed for the carnage they vote for. https://t.co/XlB1xEGStu

Senator Kevin Cramer just told reporters that he is “more interested in the red wave” than red flag laws.
The GOP doesn’t care whether American kids live or die.

Thanks for honestly saying that the rights of killers matter to you more than children’s lives.
Unless they’re unborn, of course. Then the fetus’ life matters more than the mother’s.https://t.co/kKT7ySiMtA
