VALUES. In a radio interview, Rep. Steve Pearce (R) said he believes America’s current struggle with mass shootings stems from “a complete breakdown in the values of the country.” Pearce thinks addressing this issue will do more to prevent mass gun violence than gun control and invoked the Rwandan genocide to support his point.

“Gun control itself is not going to be the answer. Take a look at Rwanda 20-30 years ago. They killed a million people with machetes because of the evil in the hearts of people,” Pearce said. (Shareblue Media)
