Senator Ted Cruz Challenges Joe Biden to a Gun Control Debate

by Kyle Becker

At the NRA Leadership Forum, Texas Senator Ted Cruz issued a challenge to Vice President Joe Biden to debate the causes of gun violence. The following is from Senator Cruz:

“If Vice President Joe Biden really believes the facts are on his side and this is not simply an exercise in political power by the administration, then I would think he would welcome the opportunity to talk about the sources, the causes of violent crime, who’s carrying it out, and how we could do everything humanly possible to stop it.”

Here’s the video:

Senator Cruz is a Constitutional attorney who has argued before the Supreme Court and Vice President Biden is a guy who recently said, “[if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Let’s see if Biden can do anything besides grin awkwardly if he should accept such a debate.

    On this gun topic. Senator Joe Manchin put a challenge out to anyone (on Fox News Sunday two Sundays ago), saying he would debate his gun bill with anyone. I sent Joe an email using his site at senate.gov to accept the challenge. I also sent Rand Paul a message to pressure him. I also sent Fox New Sunday host Chris a message to pressure him to accept. Nothing but crickets.

    All this debate crap is all talk. There is little chance that either establishment (right or left) will allow this topic to reach the principled debate it deserves.

      I’ve been kind of a wonk on gun violence stats for a long time at IJReview, and there were only a few libs who debated me on the subject and I shut them up pretty fast. There’s no correlation between gun control and reduction of homicides and violent crime. Period.
