In a series of tweets, Rep. Crenshaw expressed that in Monsey, New York, “anti-Semitism again reared its ugly head as a man attacked Jews attending a Hanukkah celebration, stabbing 5 victims.” Shortly later, as has been making the rounds on news circuits because of the debate concerning the 2nd amendment, in White Settlement, Texas, “a man started shooting during a service at West Freeway Church of Christ.”

The shooter sadly killed a church member “before security swiftly acted to stop him.”

The Texas Rep. noted that “the last 24 hours has demonstrated that things must change in America.”

He argued that “the evil few seeking to make the rest of us live in fear cannot succeed,” adding that “they must be held accountable to the highest degree.”

As lawmakers reconvene for the new year, Rep. Crenshaw asserts that “we must work together to stop the growing hatred in our country.”

Rep. Crenshaw has been a vocal supporter of 2nd amendment rights, and video footage of the shooting showed multiple law abiding citizens drawing their weapons to stop the shooter from taking any more lives.

Supporters of the 2nd amendment have argued that this is a clear example of the 2nd amendment’s intentions.
