Cornyn Calls for Hearings on DoJ's Failure to Enforce Gun Laws


Location: Washington, DC

In a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) called on the Committee to hold hearings on the recent drop in gun crime prosecutions by federal law enforcement agencies.

"I have a hard time telling my constituents in Texas that Congress is looking at passing a whole raft of new laws, when the laws that we currently have on the books are so woefully unenforced.

"Gun crime prosecutions are down across the board, including enforcement of laws against lying on background checks.

"I hope we'll have a hearing where we'll ask Administration witnesses to come before the panel and to testify why the Department of Justice and other law enforcement agencies of the federal government are not enforcing the laws that Congress has already passed.

"There are areas where Congress can come together, right now, to examine the nexus between gun crime, violence, and mental healthcare.

"I'm willing to listen to serious ideas -- not just window dressing -- to try to come up with solutions."
