Ted Cruz said Monday that single moms living in rough urban neighborhoods should pack guns so they can protect their kids.
Cruz appeared at a town hall-style interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” where Bronx pastor Dimas Salaberrios — an undecided Republican — asked him if he, as president, could stop the pipeline of guns from the South that make their way north to New York City.
The Texas Republican said gun control isn’t the answer.
“You look at Washington, DC, and Chicago, they have effectively banned firearms and are right at the top of the murder rates. I don’t think the answer is stripping people of their rights to defend themselves,” Cruz said.
“If you’re a single mom living in a tough neighborhood, the Second Amendment protects your right that if someone comes through the window trying to harm your kids, you have a right to protect your kids. You have a right to be armed to protect your family.”
