Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was heckled for his stance on gun rights following his Friday speech at the National Rifle Association’s 2022 Annual Leadership Forum.
While Cruz was dining in a Houston sushi restaurant, Benjamin Hernandez, a member of activist group Indivisible Houston, approached the senator and demanded him to support escalated gun control measures in the wake of the Robb Elementary School massacre on Tuesday that left 22 people, including the shooter, dead.
The article goes on to state the following:
Hernandez first posed for a photo with Cruz, and the two were all smiles until he began peppering the senator with questions about gun laws. Cruz told Hernandez there were lots of laws he would support to curb gun violence, but the senator said he takes issue with the one championed by Democrats. Cruz struggled to get a word in edgewise as Hernandez berated him with pointed questions, including his position on strengthened background checks.
In a tweet posted by Indivisible Houston, a video shows the conversation between Hernandez and Cruz.
“We can make it harder for people to get guns in this country,” Hernandez said in the video. “You know that. You know that, but you stand here. You stand at the NRA convention. It is harder, it is harder when there are more guns to stop gun violence.”
Cruz said the proposals that Hernandez supports would not have stopped the shooter.
“Why did you come here to the convention?” Hernandez said to Cruz. “Nineteen children died! Nineteen children died! That’s on your hands! That’s on your hands! Ted Cruz, that’s on your hands!”
Cruz remained calm throughout the encounter, and pointed to measures he supported and proposed as Hernandez repeatedly interrupted. Eventually security pulled the two apart.
