A Ted Cruz Response

In response to my post on Senator Ted Cruz’s confrontation with Senator Dianne Feinstein, I heard from an adviser to Senator Cruz, who believes I provided an inaccurate and incomplete account of Senator Cruz’s views.

What Senator Cruz believes, I was told, is that (a) the weapons Senator Feinstein wants to ban fall under the category of “common use of the time,” which would make her ban unconstitutional; (b) that the itemized list Feinstein proposes raises serious constitutional issues; and (c) the Texas senator is fully aware of the meaning and implications of the Heller decision. I’m happy to relay those clarifications, as well as a link to an appearance on Fox News by Senator Cruz.

People can read my original post, watch the link I provided to the Cruz v. Feinstein confrontation, and then watch Senator Cruz’s post-hearing interview and decide for themselves how clear and effective his line of questioning was and the merits of my critique. I simply wanted to convey the views of Senator Cruz, to be sure readers were aware of them.
