A viewer sent NewsChannel 9 an e-mail, concerned about how Congressman Beto O'rourke's office has been handling questions about gun control.
A representative told the viewer they couldn't disclose any information.

We sent Congressman O'Rourke the e-mail, and Thursday, O'rourke responded.

"Everything should be on the table, including better enforcement of existing laws, improved access to mental health treatment, and an examination of whether restrictions on high-capacity magazines or assault weapons would prevent future mass shootings," he said.

"If specific legislation comes before Congress, I will base my support on two simple criteria: will it make my constituents safer and will it protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners."

Sounds like Beto is being a true polirician by playing it safe and pretending to be open minded. Seems to me that his staff had it right the first time by not wanting to say anything cause they know where he will eventually stand on these issues, and that is not with the President but with his friends the REPUBLICANS!
