WASHINGTON D.C — Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) expressed support for gun control on Sunday.
“We ought to be looking at where the real danger is, like those large clips, I think that does need to be looked at,” Hutchison told CBS's Face The Nation. "It's the semi-automatics and those large magazines that can be fired off very quickly. You do have to pull the trigger each time, but it’s very quick.”
Hutchison also said that she supported having more armed police in schools, but said those decisions need to be made at a local level.
Hutchison has been a longtime supporter of gun rights and has an A rating from the NRA. In 2007, she sponsored the District of Columbia Personal Protection Act, a bill to overturn DC's handgun ban.
