Senator Ted Cruz says he won’t “apologize for thoughts or prayers” he sends to shooting victims. The Texas Republican made that comment on Tuesday during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing after ten people were killed on Monday in a mass shooting in Boulder, Colorado.

Cruz blamed the Department of Justice, which he said has a “long and indefensible practice of not prosecuting felons and fugitives” who try to buy firearms illegally. Cruz said he agrees that thoughts and prayers alone “are not enough, we need action.”
