SEAN DUFFY: … It’s disappointing because if you want to save lives, you should go to the root cause of the problem. What’s happening in society that’s causing young people or any people to pick up a gun and take someone else’s life? I think this by the Democrats is just to take the freedom of our ability, our constitutional right to own a gun away from us, to defend ourselves, away from us. And I go, where do they do this, Matt? They did it in the old Soviet Union in China. You can’t have a gun in Cuba. You can’t have a gun in Venezuela. You can’t have a gun, and they don’t want you to have a gun.
MATTHEW WHITAKER: … you’re absolutely right. And that’s what their whole agenda is. It’s taking the law out of the guns, out of law-abiding citizens from places like where you’re from in Wisconsin, places where I’m from in Iowa, where we have lawful gun owners that respect each other’s rights but protect themselves and are also sportsmen. So, you know, I’m just worried about what the left is trying to do, especially nationally.

… What’s happening, Sean, is you’re having a breakdown in both the communities and families as well. You’re having a breakdown in our schools and education systems, and it’s conspiring to really disserve our children, disserve our families and lead to these horrific crimes in many of our cities.
