Apparently, being pro-Second Amendment in Congress is equivalent to supporting mass shootings in America. At least, that's the interpretation of Rep. Steve Cohen  (D-Tenn.) during an appearance on MSNBC today.

Congressman Cohen, who is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, commented that the congressional reaction to the Navy Yard shooting on Monday September 16 wasn't that surprising given the inaction on gun-control legislation after the shootings in Newtown.

"On the Judiciary Committee, which I sit on, that's Murderers' Row; that's Foxx, Gehrig and Ruth. They all like their guns," Rep. Cohen said of the Republicans of the Judiciary Committee.
