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.”
