Rick Santorum Goes Down In Flames After Claiming ‘Very Very Few’ Crimes Happen Because Of Assault Weapons In America

Former Sen. Rick Santorum appeared on CNN on Tuesday where he spoke out against gun control following yet another mass shooting in America.

During his appearance, Santorum praised Senat Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for refusing to allow any votes on gun control bills that have passed the House of Representatives.

“Look, Mitch McConnell is doing what every good leader does. He listenings to his caucus and determines what they want,” Santorum argued.

But that’s when CNN’s Erin Burnett started calling him out.

“USA Today just released a poll, 67 percent of Americans want Senate bills passed with background checks that the House passed,” Burnett said. “That includes a majority of Republicans.

“Look, I don’t think those polls are worth too much,” Santorum replied.

“When the Second Amendment goes in front of the Supreme Court and they say anyone with a common gun should be allowed, the one thing mass shootings have in common, the common gun are the assault weapons,” Burnett argued.

“Actually, very, very — very, very few crimes occur in this country with assault weapons and rifles,” Santorum replied.

“Mass shootings, senator. Mass shootings!” Burnett replied.

“Again, very, very few crimes,” Santorum began.

“Mass shootings!” Burnett interrupted.

“Nobody wants mass shootings and this is the gun used for that,” Burnett concluded.
