South Carolina Senator Tim Scott has a question for President Obama after the president pushed the idea of more anti-gun legislation just hours after nine people were killed in a Charleston church.

“What type of gun law would have made this situation not occur?” Scott asked, appearing Friday on Fox News’ “The Kelly File.”

Scott said Obama was “off base” on his assessment, as shooter Dylann Roof had already broken existing gun laws by owning a gun as a felon and entering a church with a firearm.

The laws were already broken,” Scott said. “To suggest that there’s somehow a way for us to specifically stop this occurrence with gun legislation seems to be inconsistent with the facts as we know them on the ground.”

Scott argued that the gun laws we have aren’t working and if the gunman had obeyed the laws the shooting would have never happened.
