Joe Scarborough: Republicans Can Pass Gun Control Or Lose House In 2 Years

Joe Scarborough: Republicans Can Pass Gun Control Or Lose House In 2 Years (VIDEO)


Joe Scarborough predicted on Wednesday that the Republican party would lose its majority in the House of Representatives if it does not pass gun control reform.

President Obama announced twenty-three executive actions on gun violence on Wednesday, following the tragic deaths of twenty-six victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December. Some of the administration's proposals — including mandatory background checks and an assault weapons ban — will will have to go through Congress.

Joe Scarborough joined Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC after Obama's speech on Wednesday. He criticized Republicans for being what he said was out of touch with Americans, an assertion he has made before, as well as the NRA.

He laid out what he saw as the GOP's two choices in the House of Representatives. "They can either pass a comprehensive gun control package right now and shape it under Speaker Boehner, or they can wait two years when they lose the majority and have Nancy Pelosi write that bill," Scarborough said. "There are no other choices."

He went on to hammer Republicans for living in an "echo chamber" for the past year. Scarborough issued the same warning to his party immediately after the Newtown shooting. In December, he said "we will lose" if Republicans continued to defend Glocks and Bushmasters.

    A HUGE number of americans have joined the NRA and other progun groups in the past few months. Not just gun owners but those who simply don't believe in loss of liberty. The dems are so out of touch it is crazy. There are a few groups that they actually get but the average american is not in those groups.

    Many Democrats, particularly in the conservative South and rural West, are vocal gun-rights supporters as well.

    "Guns have been one of the key issues that more moderate Democrats have used to express their independence from the Democratic Party, and this gun talk is putting a strain on that independence," Gonzales said. Though they might be willing to support proposals such as a ban on large-capacity magazines, they're unlikely to vote to ban "an actual gun," he said.
