"the democrats seem confused, they don't understand the difference between bad guys and law abiding citizens."many in attendance believed it's the lack of areas supportive of gun rights that's leaving america vulnerable to mass shootings... if you take guns away from us, then we have less protection against

"i don't see them coming to a police department, i don't see them coming to a gun show do they?"and that calling off the rally would have instead catered to the terrorists... "i really don't view our job as being sensitive to islamic terrorism..."for cruz...arming citizens would help them fight back the next time this type of terrorism strikes america "we are perfectly happy to introduce them tho their 76 virgins." "strict gun control laws are an abysmal failure."it's his firm stance on 2nd amendment rights that senator cruz says has washington and democrats on the run...
