    WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) today released the following statement on President Obama's comments related to gun control legislation:

    “In any conversation about how to prevent future tragedies such as Sandy Hook, our focus should be on stopping criminals from obtaining guns. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has failed to make this a priority — in 2010, out of more than 15,700 fugitives and felons who tried to illegally purchase a firearm, the Obama Justice Department prosecuted only 44. That is unacceptable.

    “It is saddening to see the President today, once again, try to take advantage of this tragic murder to promote an agenda that will do nothing to stop violent crime, but will undermine the constitutional rights of all law-abiding Americans. I am committed to working with Sens. Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, and Jim Inhofe--and I hope many other colleagues--to use any procedural means necessary to protect those fundamental rights.”

    Exploiting the tragic murder of many. Obama has no limit to his agenda.

    I wonder how long Biden had to practice in front of a mirror to perfect that "sad" face.

    Is that what it's supposed to be. Looks like he has to fart and is holding it back.

    Yep, I'm proud he represents me and I wish there were more bold ones around the country like him.

    How far?

    I could only imagine how far I (or those with greater intellect) could take the backing of billions of dollars and promote a positive attitude (universal feeling of greater self accountability), and grow our Nation. The pessimist in me has a very sorry view of the future. Very sorry for my grandchildren, and glad I only have X number of years left in this earthly existence.

    He'll be scolded by the Speaker and excoriated by "The Architect" by noon tomorrow.

    I wish there were more like him, Paul, and Lee. We wouldn't have the problems we do if that were the case.

    Cruz has been an impressive freshman.

    Biden looks like Jeff Dunham's dummy Walter.

    I hope he doesn't get turned on and demonized, I like how he says what needs to be said.

    I wrote to Sen. Cruz a while back about a few 2nd amendment issues. No direct response, but it appears I got on the mailing list for my efforts. In his most recent 'newsletter' that covers several topics, it says this about the gun legislation:

    And from a Justice Department that wanted to traffic guns to the Mexican drug dealers.

    Senator Cruz rocks, wish he was one of my Senators. One of my daughter is moving to Texas this fall and will benefit from Senator Cruz. Lucky girl.

    Senator Sessions pretty much told me the same thing. That was his big thing. As far as he's concerned, before any talk about anything relating to guns is even broached, we better prosecute those who already violate the law.

    Annnnd that would be my Senator. TX stand up! We may not have open carry and some archaic laws down here but Texas is leading the fight against the left.

    He is my Senator also, I voted for him and Cornyn also and I am not worried about Texas not having Open Carry, I prefer Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!;)

    Same here. I got onboard in the primary mostly because I didn't care for Dewhurst. Now, I'm really happy for having supported Cruz. We need another 50 like him to really get some things done.

    Not really holding my breath for that, but I'm glad to see him fighting.
