Transcript for Rick Santorum: 'We Should Stick To Our Guns'
I think Republican should place. -- I think we should stick to our guns. And him George reminded me something I said to him back in 94 when I ran for the senate and and Pennsylvania said -- am -- gonna win and I said guns. This did and I don't think that I think it's even more important issue for people today given. The increasing level of violence in our society people feel unsafe. And and and having -- -- and gun ownership is is is part of how people can feel safer and when you look at the in my opinion in the in the disingenuousness.

Four people who fill out if you lie on their on their registration forms are -- forms are down under this administration. The vice president respondent. We don't have time to devote to see whether people fell out of form right. They're asking for more forms -- and they're saying they don't have the time to fill outfit to check what what is -- is pretty serious about this or is this just about politics.

It's about a narrow set of proposals that will enable us to help enforce. The existing gun laws. The ban on assault weapons and -- ban on -- high capacity magazines and even a ban on armor piercing bullets are overwhelmingly. Supported. By the citizenry. 50% of men 57 -- 59% of women support and assault ban. Assault weapons ban same number for a ban on high capacity magazines I think the president views this. He's really he sees himself as the protector in chief.
