Ted Cruz: Background Check Goal a 'Federal List of Every Gun Owner in America'

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Fox News' "Hannity" discussing universal background checks:

"I think it's wrong that politicians try to take advantage of [victims'] suffering–not to actually fix the problem but instead to push the same anti-gun agenda they had before this tragedy...

"Why is all this focus directed at background checks? The reason is because the Department of Justice has said the only way to implement what they want–universal background checks–is a registry, a federal list of every gun owner in America. And that would be wrong; it'd be unconstitutional."
