Are gun-control laws needed? US Rep. Brian Babin says no

U.S. Rep. Brian Babin, a guest on this week’s Houston Newsmakers with Khambrel Marshall, said despite the recent series of mass murders in this country, new gun laws won’t solve the problem.

“If gun control worked, then why are cities like Indianapolis or like Chicago, New York, why do some of these cities have some of the highest murder rates in the entire country,” he said. “I am very very concerned about some of the plans and some of the bills that have been offered in the U.S. House to control our guns and to get guns out of the hands of those who desperately need them for their own self-protection.”

Babin also weighs in on the immigration crisis along the Texas southern border, the voting rights bills being pushed across the country, and about his vote to not certify the election in two states on January 6th.
