In the anti-gun hurricane that has been the liberal media’s response to the tragic Texas school shooting all week, including calls for sweeping bans on everything from rifles to handguns to shotguns, the eye of that storm seemed to pass over CNN’s The Lead on Thursday as anchor Jake Tapper brought on the founder of The Reload (the home for “sober, serious firearms journalism”) former MRCTV writer, MRC Bulldog Award winner Stephen Gutowski to take a sober look at what policies proposed by Democrats and Republicans could have chance to be enacted.

Tapper began by noting that “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he told Texas Senator John Cornyn to work to find a bipartisan solution, to work with Democrats,” and looked to Gutowski as “a supporter of the Second Amendment” for what “might work.”

“I don't think there's a single switch that you can flip that’s going to solve the issue. Right? I mean, certainly, that's something that you do hear from politicians who talk about this. But I think it's absolutely true,” Gutowski said.
