Steve Mnuchin on Gun Control

 

 


Gun violence is tragedy and policy needs to be addressed

"I will say personally, I think the gun violence -- it's a tragedy what we've seen yesterday, and I'd urge Congress to look at these issues," Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said at an unrelated House hearing on the White House's fiscal year 2019 budget request. The Treasury Department [headed by Mnuchin] later told Politico that Mnuchin did not refer to whether Congress should think about changing gun laws. He was responding specifically to a question from Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, about whether funds in the federal budget were set aside to address gun violence, the agency said.

Lewis pressed Mnuchin about what the White House might do in response to the latest mass shooting in the United States. While Mnuchin acknowledged that gun policy is "out of my lane of responsibilities," he said he would speak to President Donald Trump And other Cabinet members about the issue.
