Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) tells Cheddar how the state is coping with the most recent mass shooting in Parkland, FL. She speculates about how this tragedy will influence the 2018 midterms and the 2020 presidential election.

Wasserman Schultz tells us why she does not support the idea of arming teachers with weapons as a means of preventing a tragedy like the Parkland school shooting. President Trump brought up this idea at a listening session with shooting survivors held at the White House.

Wasserman Schultz expresses her desire to put partisanship aside and pass a ban on assault weapons. Additionally, she supports age restrictions that would prohibit an 18-year-old from getting a weapon. Although she is amazed at the eloquence of the students speaking out on gun control, she remains skeptical about whether meaningful gun reform will ever happen under the current administration.
