While we mourn these victims, again, this was a man who took his car and a knife and ended up killing four innocent victims, no gun involved at all. So, when you see him here, and you have the left coming out all outraged about gun violence, it doesn’t really matter. It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger, it’s the human being that does it. It’s not the terrorist — I mean, it’s not the car or knife that kills people, it’s the terrorist that does it.

Murphy: Do you think guns have any place in or around schools?
DeVos: That is best left to locales and states to decide. If the underlying question is —
Murphy: You can’t say definitively today that guns shouldn’t be in schools?
DeVos: I will refer back to (Wyoming) Senator (Mike) Enzi and the school he was talking about in Wyoming. I think probably there, I would imagine that there is probably a gun in the schools to protect from potential grizzlies.
Murphy: If President Trump moves forward with his plan to ban gun free school zones, will you support that?
DeVos: I will support what the president-elect does. If the question is around gun violence and the results of that, please know that my heart bleeds and is broken for those families that have lost any individual due to gun violence.
Murphy: I look forward to working with you, but I also look forward to you coming to Connecticut to talk about the role of guns in schools.

Now, whether or not in a place like Chicago you do stop and frisk, which worked very well, Mayor Giuliani is here, worked very well in New York. It brought the crime rate way down. But you take the gun away from criminals that shouldn’t be having it … we have to take the guns away from these people that have them and they are bad people that shouldn’t have them. These are felons.
