Rick Santorum: Majority of school shooters ‘did not have dads in the home’

- The Washington Times - Monday, February 26, 2018

Former Sen. Rick Santorum pointed the finger at broken homes and fatherless young males as a major contributor to mass shootings when asked to weigh in on the gun-control debate on CNN.

“Gun control is a debate that we need to have,” Mr. Santorum, a Pennsylvania Republican and CNN political commentator who boasts an A+ rating with the National Rifle Association, said on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday. The former senator reiterated his call to focus on the family during an appearance Monday on CNN’s “New Day.”

“But another debate we need to have is something that’s also common in these shootings, the fact that these kids come from broken homes without dads. That is not something we’re talking about, and that is the commonality,” he said. “We want to talk about things we can work together on? How about working together to try to see what we can do to get more dads involved in the lives of their kids.”

Santorum dismisses as 'outlier' poll showing majority support gun control

THE HILL:  BY LUIS SANCHEZ -

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) said on Sunday that he does not believe a recent CNN poll that found more Americans support stricter gun laws than at any time since 1993.

“I just don’t believe the poll. I just think it is an outlier poll,” Santorum told “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper.

Seventy percent of respondents in the CNN poll released on Sunday said that they support stricter gun laws, up from 52 percent in October.

Santorum said he doesn’t trust the poll because it surveyed a disproportionately small number of Republicans.

“That poll only had 23 percent Republicans in the poll,” he said. “The numbers should be more reflective of the 35 to 40 percent that is Republican in this country.”

An open letter to President Donald J. Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan

As you plan your 2018 legislative agenda, we strongly recommend that you keep health care as a top priority.

We applaud your success in repealing one of the most despised parts of Obamacare—the individual mandate fines—but millions of Americans are still suffering under the many other provisions of the 2010 health overhaul that remain on the books.

Americans need relief, and we believe they will hold their representatives accountable at the polls this November.

The efforts you put into repealing and replacing Obamacare last year were heroic. But the challenges are great.

Millions of people now rely on Obamacare subsidies for their health coverage, and the law has introduced wave after wave of distortions into our health sector, making legislative change difficult, especially under the torturous reconciliation rules.

The legislation offered last fall by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., offered a new platform for reform that we believe can lead to success.
