Sen. John Thune (R-SD) on Tuesday responded to calls for increasing gun control after the electrocute in Las Vegas by revelation reporters that sharpened victims had a shortcoming to strengthen themselves from gunfire.
“It sounds like [the shooter] used acclimatisation kits and other things, you know, to make the weapons some-more lethal,” Thune reportedly told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson. “We’ll demeanour at the contribution when we get them all in here. we consider a lot of us wish to do all we can to forestall tragedies like that from happening again.”
But Thune shied divided from the subject of gun control, arguing, “[I]t’s an open multitude and it’s tough to forestall anything.”
Instead, the Republican senator offering recommendation to intensity victims.
“I consider people are going to have to take stairs in their own lives to take precautions,” he opined. “To strengthen themselves. And in situations like that, you know, try to stay safe. As somebody pronounced — get small.”
