Sen. Ted Cruz went on Donald Trump’s favorite show Thursday to roll out the favorite argument of Republicans who want to see more children die in the name of a constitutional amendment that applied to muskets and well-organized militias: "The reaction of Democrats to any tragedy is to try to politicize it," Cruz said on "Fox & Friends."
