CNN’s Gilliam: Shootings Don’t ‘Have Anything To Do With Climate Change,’ Criminals Will Always Get Guns

CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Jonathan Gilliam criticized those who blamed terrorism on climate change by stating, “none of this — these things that are occurring have anything to do with climate change” and argued, “It doesn’t matter what laws you do, how many guns you take away from law-abiding citizens, the bad people will always be able to get them” on Wednesday.

Gilliam said, in response to a question on gun control, “I think background checks are important. I don’t know a lot of people who disagree with that, but you have to have stiffer penalties for people who use these weapons, for people that are associated with people that are using these weapons or selling them. Because here’s the facts, once a gun was invented, the very second it was invented, it will always be in the hands of bad people. It doesn’t matter what laws you do, how many guns you take away from law-abiding citizens, the bad people will always be able to get them. And as an FBI agent, we used to do illegal gun buys all the time. We have to be able to expand that, because you can take all the guns away and shut down the gun shows, but they’re still going to be able to — there are so many guns in the world, that you have to kick up law enforcement’s ability to go and target these illegal gun sales, and the people who that are using them. I think that one thing that’s clear though is, none of this — these things that are occurring have anything to do with climate change.”
