Rep. Collins on Florida shooting: This isn’t about guns

Local News

The mass shooting at a Florida high school has reignited the debate over gun control. But Congressman Chris Collins, a Republican who represents Western New York, says that’s not the main issue.

“Sometimes there is just not an easy solution,” Collins said. “The left wants to pander to the American public and say this is about gun control, which it’s not, this is about mental health, social media. about the troubled times today we have with youth.”

Meanwhile, Governor Cuomo, a Democrat, said inaction in Washington is infuriating. His statement said, in part, “How many more children must die before this nation acts? How many more times must we grieve before politicians put the safety of their communities before the financial contributions of special interest groups?”
