Democrat Charles Rangel gave an interview to MSNBC stating New York is more progressive than some places and some regions, particularly the American South, have “cultures that we have to overcome” in order to enact stricter national gun laws.
“Do you think that New York and what has been done in this state could be used as a role model for other states that would like to enact something of New York’s model?” Roberts asked.
“I hope so,” Rangel replied. “New York is different and more progressive than a lot of areas in other states, and some of the Southern areas have cultures that we have to overcome.”
He concluded that he was glad that Republicans and Democrats can come together, knowing that they “have to do something.”
