In a clip that went viral this week, a former Army Officer and self-described “gun lover” argued that the government needs to further restrict 2A rights to prevent mass shootings like the recent mall attack in Allen, Texas.

“When you get hit with an automatic weapon fire at close range, there is no opportunity for survival,” Steven Spainhouer told MSNBC in an interview. 

Spainhouer, who is also a former police officer continued, “I don’t know what the gunman’s problem was, but it wasn’t mental health that killed these people. It was an automatic rifle with bullets.”

The shooting happened on Saturday inside the Allen Premium Outlets.  Nine people were killed, including the perpetrator. Spainhouer was reportedly in the mall during the attack.

Mainstream media is reporting that the gunman used an “AR-15-style rifle” in the attack.

“I’m a gun lover. I have guns. I’m a former police officer. I’m a former Army officer. But these M-4s, AR-15s, they’ve got to get off the streets, or this is going to keep happening,” Spainhouer said during the Sunday interview. “We’ve got to stop that at some point.”

“All the politicians are going to make statements. They’re going to offer prayers and condolences,” Spainhouer added. “Prayers and condolences won’t bring these people back. We need some action in our legislatures at the federal and state level for better gun control. And I’m saying that as someone who loves guns.”

President Biden on Sunday called on Congress to pass a sweeping ban on “assault weapons.” Biden vowed to sign the bill into law, “immediately.”
