“I am determined that this country will not go backwards … President Trump gave us a clear directive. It’s the policy of this administration to reduce crime in America, not preside over an increase in crime, but reduce crime.” — Attorney General Jeff Sessions, encouraging cities to crack down on lawbreakers by implementing tough-on-crime programs such as Project Exile. 

“Veterans who fought to defend the Constitution should also be allowed the rights to protect it.” — Representative and chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs Phil Roe, who sponsored the NRA-backed “Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act.” 

“I don’t support crazy people having guns, whether they’re veterans or not.” — Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.), displaying a complete lack of understanding as to who, exactly, is at risk for having their rights revoked by the VA gun ban. 

“FACT: Silencers do not protect your hearing.” Tweet by Gabby Giffords’ group Americans for Responsible Solutions, which was accompanied by a graphic claiming that suppressor use “makes it easier for active shooters to inflict serious harm … without being detected.” (In reality, neither of these contradictory statements qualifies as a “FACT.”) 

“We don’t know how we would compel people to provide the evidence we’d need to secure a conviction … I see this more as an anti-gun bill than an anti-crime bill.” — Sheriff Tony Mace of Cibola County, N.M., referring specifically to New Mexico’s failed “universal” background check measure, but indirectly pointing out the problems endemic in all such laws.
