Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz says restricting gun rights will not work to reduce violence. Democrats pushed federal red-flag laws at a hearing on Wednesday. The laws would allow a judge to remove the guns of a person who’s determined to be a threat to the public or himself.

Nineteen states and the District of Columbia have such laws. Cruz says taking away guns only increases violence because it makes law-abiding citizens defenseless.
