(Think Progress) -- Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday addressed a school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that killed 17 people — by proposing policy solutions to prevent shootings that don’t actually make any sense.
During a speech to a sheriffs’ convention in Washington on Thursday morning, Sessions said he thinks the next school shooting can be prevented by stronger enforcement of existing gun laws.
“I think effective enforcement of our gun laws, focusing on criminals and dangerous people, mentally ill people that have been — where we have the legal ability to do so — can reduce violence in our communities and improve public safety,” Sessions said. “It is not good if we got gun laws that say criminals can’t carry guns and they never get enforced. So we intend to enforce our laws.”
