San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and his twin brother Joaquín, a Democrat set to represent Texas in the next Congress, think a reexamination of gun laws is in order in the wake of the Newtown school shooting that left 20 children dead.
The two men discussed the gun control debate with journalist and television host Charlie Rose during a roundtable on Monday, with Julián saying he backs the renewal of the assault weapons ban.
"I believe that Senator Feinstein has it right with regard to the assault weapons ban, that it ought to be reintroduced," he said.
But the mayor called gun rights "a complex issue," saying that he does not support eliminating the right to bear arms; he just thinks it should be regulated.
"There is a feeling that the Second Amendment is there in the Constitution, folks will have the right to bear arms," Julián said. "At the same time, like every other freedom, there are reasonable limits, regulations to be placed on it."
"I think it is imperative that the next Congress act on this issue," Joaquín said.
Joaquín, like his brother, said that any debate on gun legislation needs to respect hunters and those who use guns responsibly, but added that, "The debate has been so skewed toward a bit of paranoia over the last several years that it's been tough to have an honest debate about it."

America’s new sweethearts!
America’s new sweethearts!
The wolves are salivating at the gate, soon the sheep will be theirs for the picking.
It won’t be long before Texas becomes a battleground state, and the likes of Castro can actually win a statewide race.
No counter-point allowed on the Charlie Rose Program.
These are from a family of noted Chicano/Hispanic Klan-type racists who want Gun Control to keep guns away from Gringos.....so they do not shoot illegals
Hey.......we do not shoot at Illegals. Oh, you did not say AT...my bad, sorry.....heheehehehehehe
Big surprise that two aholes named Castro want to grab guns.
Yes, and voter fraud by illegals will be rampant to ensure it happens.
I thought the headline was referring to the “other” Castro brothers.
Just comin’ out of the woodwork all over.
Gotta agree with them on that. That none of the school staff had the means to protect the students from the perp is inexcusable!
