Ex-GOP lawmaker: Vote Republicans out if you want mass shootings stopped

“And so if this is the issue that defines your ideology as a voter, there are two things I would suggest tonight. First, flip the House. Flip the House,” Jolly told “CNN Tonight.” “Republicans are not going to do a single thing after this shooting we saw today. But I would also offer to Democrats, work for incremental wins.”

Jolly, who left office last January after losing a reelection bid, argued Democrats should work with the law enforcement community on gun control legislation.

The former Florida congressman said “Republicans will never do anything on gun control,” referencing the shooting at a baseball field last year that left Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) seriously injured.
