We're not taking a side in the gun debate, but some things being said are just plain silly.

There is yet another compilation of quotes from Republicans that are centered around guns and gun controls. Some of these are just down right ridiculous.

In the 20 Dumb Gun Quotes Made By Republicans, article, there are some moments where the pal will totally hit your face. Some of them are probably going to leave you in total disbelief after reading it.

Gun control is a pretty serious issue in the U.S. and the fact that some of these statements have been made are mind-boggling.

"There is no doubt that this senseless violence is breathtaking - but I never saw a body with bullet holes that was more devastating than taking the right to arm ourselves away," said Republican Presidential Candidate Ben Carson, according to the list.

That's not only pretty gruesome, but it's also incredibly silly to say. Comparing a dead body or someone who has been shot to anything doesn't sound like a good idea.

"Here's the simple and undeniable fact: The overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats," said Ted Cruz, according to the compilation.

That just seems like a way of evading a question or dealing with the issue. What these quotes prove is that maybe everyone just needs to sit back and think a little before they make a statement on one of the most sensitive issues not only in the U.S. but in the world today.
