This Gun Control Debate Is Nothing New

Live Leak posted this video of former Rep. Suzanna Gratia Hupp testifying before Congress about what she experienced when a mad gunman massacred more than twenty people at a Luby’s restaurant in Texas in 1991. She had a handgun, but left it in her car because concealed carry was illegal. Her parents were among the victims. If she had her gun, she could have saved lives. She went on to become a congresswoman from 1997 to 2007. What she said at this hearing is still true today. Oh, and be sure to watch for the smug look on the face of Senator Chuck Schumer.

Watch and listen to her testimony. Nothing we’re hearing today is new, but her words are just as meaningful today as they were back then. Pay attention when she talks about how many bullets a magazine holds.
