Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D., Conn.) on Tuesday condemned an argument by opponents that gun control measures proposed by Democrats wouldn’t have stopped the Las Vegas mass shooter, saying “that argument is absurd.”

“Enough of the evasions that it’s not time yet, that it won’t deal with that problem, that the background check proposal wouldn’t have stopped the killer in Las Vegas. That argument is absurd,” Blumenthal said at a gun violence presser with fellow Democrats.

Do you agree it is absurd to think more intense background checks would have prevented the Las Vegas shooter?
