MSNBC Panelist Says Senators Who Voted Against Gun Bill Will ‘Literally Have Blood on Their Hands’


Regular MSNBC “Morning Joe” panelist Donny Deutsch said Friday that senators who voted against last month’s failed gun legislation will “literally have blood on their hands” the next time there’s a shooting.

“Unfortunately the next time a crazy or somebody who would have not gotten a gun from a background check kills somebody, I want to know what the response is going to be because they literally have blood on their hands,” Deutsch said. “I want their response — that senator’s response — the next time, whether it’s tomorrow, next week, next month, a child, anybody is killed by somebody who might have been prevented by a background check, I want to know their answers at that moment in time.”

“They have blood on their hands,” he repeated. “It’s that simple. There’s no gray, there’s no abstract here, it is literally — the dots are that connected.”

“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski seconded Deutsch’s comments, adding, “I agree completely. I’m sorry, there is no excuse for this.”
