Homeland Security Secretary: Gun Control a Matter of Homeland Security

Jeh Johnson, Homeland Security Secretary, stated “we have to face the fact that meaningful gun control has to be a part of homeland security” during an interview on “CBS This Morning.” The Secretary spoke following a massacre in Orlando over the weekend that left 53 people injured and 49 people dead.

Johnson stressed the importance of minimizing the opportunities to terrorists in the country to obtain a gun.

During the interview, the secretary was pressed on the ongoing issue of people on the no-fly list being allowed to purchase firearms in the United States. The secretary responded “I believe that that’s something that has to be addressed.”

President Obama is struggling with a lack of action to prevent gun violence according to Johnson.

Sandy Hook, a previous massacre that left schoolchildren murdered while at school, was discussed, too. Johnson asserted that he thought Sandy Hook would be a tipping point for gun control. “We were not able to move the needle in Congress, unfortunately” he said.

Numerous efforts to change gun laws in the country over the past decade have all failed. A ban on assault weapons expired in 2004 with lawmakers yet to reestablish the ban on assault weapons. The issue of gun control reached the Capitol Hill on Monday as Democrats demanded gun control legislation.
