The Washington Examiner’s Editor-in-Chief Hugo Gurdon reacted Monday to the proposed bipartisan agreement that seeks to curb gun violence, calling it a “good framework,” but he added that the details still need to be fleshed out.

On Fox Business’s Mornings with Maria, Gurdon told host Dagen McDowell, “I think this is a pretty good start.”

“Obviously, there are details to be thrashed out, but what it already contains is reasonably encouraging, things like making schools better at defending themselves, hardening the schools,” he said, adding that the legislation includes enhanced background checks.

“You don’t have the sort of absurd rhetoric about assault weapons, which is just a way of, you know, mischaracterizing what the most popular weapons are in this country, and you know, you don’t have anything at the moment about increased magazine size, which is just a way of harassing law-abiding people,” Gurdon continued, noting that the agreement has significant bipartisan backing.

On the prospect of President Joe Biden running for reelection in 2024, Gurdon reiterated the prominent sentiment that he is too old to be in the role.

He explained that the Democrats are considering recycled, failed candidates as possible contenders for 2024, while the GOP seems to be offering a plethora of new and experienced candidates.

“These are people that the country has been presented before and who were not enormously impressive candidates,” he said of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

“On the Republican side, you have people like [Florida Gov. Ron] DeSantis, Mike Pompeo, [and Arkansas Sen. Tom] Cotton, who are not retreads from previous presidential campaigns, and they also have a great deal of experience,” Gurdon explained.
