WATCH: CNN Analyst Bursts Into Tears On Air Over Florida Shooting, Pushes Gun Control

"... we're talking about bump stocks, we're talking about legislation ..."

On Wednesday, CNN counterterrorism analyst Philip Mudd burst into tears and pushed gun control while speaking about the tragic school shooting in Florida during a live segment with host Wolf Blitzer.

"I have ten nieces and nephews,” said Mudd. “We’re talking about bump stocks, we’re talking about legislation. A child of god is dead. Can not we acknowledge in this country that we cannot accept this.”

“I can’t do it, Wolf,” he continued. “I’m sorry, we can’t do it."

The suspect of the fatal shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has been identified as Nicolas Cruz, a former student.

As noted by Daily Wire's Ryan Saavedra, Fox News' Trace Gallagher reported that Cruz "was a member of 'resistance groups' on Facebook."

“He’s also following resistance groups, like Syrian Resistance groups and fighter groups out of Iraq and, we should also note that a couple days ago, as far as a week ago, that he was involved in a Youtube chat room conversation about bombs or building bombs,” said Gallagher.

According to The Associated Press, at least 17 people have been confirmed dead.

Last year, Mudd said the deep state was "going to kill" Trump during a live CNN segment. (See video here.)
