Opponents say

• "Now, the question is what do we need to do that actually works? And this is where I get frustrated with Democratic politicians in Washington because the proposals they’re putting forward would not have stopped a single one of these mass murders." Source: Sen. Ted Cruz (Republican, Texas)
• "If gun control were the answer there would be no Paris and Brussels attacks. Instead of calling for more gun control, we need a more robust intelligence gathering system and a rejection of the ‘leading from behind’ model of President Obama which allowed ISIL to come into being and continue to exist." Source: Sen. Marco Rubio (Republican, South Carolina)

• "Assault weapons and high-capacity magazines are designed for no purpose other than to kill quickly and as brutally as possible. No one needs them." Source: President Joe Biden
