GOP Rep Meadows on Parkland Shooting: ‘More Government Doesn’t Solve the Problem’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, was asked what his and the Freedom Caucus’ position on the federal government’s response to last week’s mass shooting at a Parkland, FL high school.

Meadows pointed out the amount of government that failed in the lead-up the tragedy and insisted more government would not be the answer.

“I think what you found, even as recent as last night — what we do know is the government was notified of a health concern,” he said. “The government was notified by the FBI. And even last night, we saw a government school resource officer failing to engage. More government doesn’t solve the problem.”
