BLUFFTON, Ind. (WFFT) - Represenative Jim Banks responded to the gun debate after 17 students were killed at a Florida high school.
Banks addressed the issue before a town hall in Bluffton Thursday.
He said with the FBI admitting it didn't investigate tips about the gunman in the massacre, new gun laws may not be the answer to preventing another deadly school shooting.
"We have to look at the laws that were on the books that weren't enforced. We need to look at those involved in the FBI accountable for not doing their job and not following up on the tip. Maybe making it easier to register tips like that," said Banks.
Banks also commended President Donald Trump for listening to the shooting survivors Wednesday, calling it "very presidential."
