Paul Ryan, Dumb Ron Johnson claim defeating ISIS will solve Mass Shootings, not gun regulation.

Another frozen in the headlights moment for Republicans, who are now so desperate to appease the NRA, that they've come up with this...

Ryan is another GOP "leader" running the nations problem with weekly mass shootings, by oddly blaming ISIS and terrorism. Guess no one was buying their popular "there's nothing we can do about it" excuse:
The Hill: Ryan suggested that he hasn't changed his tune following the Orlando tragedy. First the bill dubbed "No fly, no buy," could trample on Second Amendment rights. "We also want to make sure that we're not infringing upon people's legitimate constitutional rights." 

Second, Ryan suggested the system currently in place is a suitable line of defense. "We can actually blow our ongoing terrorist investigations."

Third, Ryan said the focus on guns, post-Orlando, is misplaced. Congress instead should be looking at ways to tackle mental illness and rein in homegrown terrorism: "Is going after the Second Amendment how you stop terrorism? No." 
It's terrorism, like at Sandy Hook?
"Let's not take our eye off the ball here. This is a person who was radicalized by Islamic radical terrorists, he claimed it was by ISIS," he added. "So we need to make sure that we're focusing on the real issue here, which is terrorism.
Dumb Ron Johnson's agitated and surreal word salad explanation focused exclusively on defeating terrorism and to do nothing on the terrorist watch list, frustrating the Devil's Advocates and their listeners. It's a 7 minute Dumb Ron Johnson panic attack that solves nothing while avoiding everything:

Gov. Chris Christie sounded just as convinced, casting aside any chance we're going to take the mass shooting problem seriously:

Sen. John McCain played the Trump crazy card by blaming Obama for the spread of terrorism, now in the U.S..

Here's the powerful closing statement from the leader of the Democratic filibuster, Sen. Chris Murphy:
