Below you can find some of the notable comments made Sunday on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” This week’s political roundtable guests included ABC News’ George Will; House Judiciary Committee chair Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.; Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.;  Washington Post Columnist Ruth Marcus; and Wall Street Journal Columnist Kimberley Strassel.

Gutierrez identifies gangbangers and drug delars as ‘delighted’ with lack of gun reform

GUTIERREZ:  I’ll tell you who is applauding and who’s clapping any lack of success on gun control, gangbangers and drug dealers across this country.  They’re happy and delighted.  Because they are murdering and killing young people each and every day.

Schumer does not comment on if Anthony Weiner deserves a second chance

SCHUMER:  Look, I’m not going to comment on that.

How did I know you’d ask that question, Jonathan?

KARL:  You’re not going to comment at all?  Do you think he…

SCHUMER:  Nope.

KARL:  Not even whether he deserves a second chance?

SCHUMER:  No comment.

Gutierrez predicts ‘real history’ is being written on immigration reform

GUTIERREZ: Look I’ve been working on this issue for 20 years.  We’re making real progress.  I see real history being written in this Congress, and I see it written this year and signed by the President of the United States.

Marcus: Ease in supporting same-sex marriage instead of gun control is a ‘rather extraordinary moment’

MARCUS:  I do not think we’re going to get magazine limits.  I think we’re at a rather extraordinary moment where it’s easier for Republican and Democratic politicians to support same sex marriage than it is for them to support the same law that was passed in 1994…It’s going to be limited progress on expanding the background check system that is already in place.

Will says Cuban Embargo made sense during Cold War, but ‘the Cold War is over’

WILL:  The Cuban Embargo may have made a lot of sense during the Cold War.  The Cold War is over.  And it is hard to think of a policy more firmly refuted by events than the policy of the embargo which is supposed to weaken one of the, it turns out, most durable dictators in the world.
