Crenshaw spars with Dana Bash on school security and guns: Is it ‘easy to get into’ CNN headquarters?

Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) schooled biased CNN host Dana Bash on Sunday during “State of the Union,” explaining to her that guards and guns are the most effective way to prevent mass shootings as opposed to gun control which is a recipe for getting even more people killed.

Confiscating guns is not the solution despite what Bash and other leftists contend. Crenshaw brought up the subject of armed guards at schools.

“The truth of the matter is if we had a minimum of two armed guards or police officers at every single school in America, you‘d probably prevent these from here on out,” he told Bash.

Bash seemed incapable of grasping the simple premise that it is people who kill using guns, not the guns themselves.

“You said that they’re random, the one through line in these deaths is that they are shootings. Therefore, they’re done by guns and guns are the leading cause of death for children and teens in the US. So shouldn’t helping save the lives of children be a top priority for you as a member of the House majority?” she densely asked Crenshaw.

“No, it absolutely should be. Which is why I say I would look to the thing that would absolutely stop this, which is putting armed police officers at every school. I visit a lot of schools. I do talks at various schools. It’s very rare that I go into a school, especially the newer ones, and they don’t have some kind of armed police presence there at all times. So that’s a preventive measure that I know will stop this and there was nothing like that in these last few mass shootings. There’s no armed guards there,” Crenshaw responded.

Missing the point entirely, Bash shot back, “So the answer is more guns?” To drive his point home, Crenshaw brought up security at CNN.

“No, the answer is armed guards. The answer is armed guards, right armed guards. The kind of guns that protect the president, that protect you all at CNN. Is it easy to get into your headquarters at CNN? Absolutely not. There’s armed guards there. There’s single points of entry. I think we should look at our schools as a place that is precious and have the same kind of security that your corporate offices do, that we do in Congress. You know if we consider a place to be important where our children go to learn every day, it should have the same level of security as every other place whether it’s a shopping mall or a corporate office that’s hard to get into,” Crenshaw reiterated to Bash.

You’re not going to get rid of guns, and I’m not going to say that people can no longer—that law-abiding citizens cannot defend themselves anymore and exercise their Second Amendment rights and think that’s going to stop mass violence. People will figure out other ways to commit mass violence once they’ve, unfortunately, reached that point in their life. It’s tragic and it’s sad and a lot of people, we don’t understand what’s happening, what’s inside their heads, and so we looked at these other solutions that I think aren’t viable,” he continued.

Bash doubled down on being wrong as usual, “There was supposed to be armed guards at the schools in both Uvalde in your home state of Texas and Parkland, and that didn’t help anything.”

She then quickly moved on, evidently because she could not hold her own with Crenshaw on the topic.
